New sustainable energy lab at Cambrian

April 28, 2010

On Monday, Cambrian College unveiled its Sustainable Energy Lab, a new applied learning lab for students in the college's Energy Systems Technology program. The lab is a portable construction trailer complementing the 3 Living Labs opened for the program last September. This past school year, third-year students in the program were challenged to modify two-thirds of the lab space using energy efficient technologies to reduce the lab's energy consumption. The students completed a number of modifications, such as the installation of solar photovoltaic panels. The unmodified portion of the lab was transformed into a workshop complete with workbench, vise, drill press, and band saw. Cambrian News Release
