Press Conference & Exhibits
Oakland University President Gary Russi, Provost Virinder Moudgil and Louay Chamra, dean of the OU School of Engineering and Computer Science, will host the launch of the Clean Energy Research Center (CERC).
While developing an educational platform that enables faculty and students to research and develop clean energy alternatives, the CERC is also partnering with the Rochester Hills-OU INCubator to build commercial partnerships with Michigan businesses. This initiative – supported by an initial grant from the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth and its private sector partner Energy Systems Group – will focus on industrial energy audits, commercialization of new technology, securing investment capital and transferring clean and alternative energy technologies to existing infrastructure. Projects will target the development of energy efficient technologies and advanced lighting, combined heat and power, solar, biomass, wind and geothermal systems.
Joining Oakland University at this event will be key federal, state, regional and local officials, as well as clean and alternative energy industry representatives who will provide cutting edge demonstrations and exhibits. Attendance is by OU invitation only.
