Renewable Energy Design (RED) is a U of A organization that helps make campus greener through hands-on renewable energy projects - practice project management, leadership, HR, graphic design, advertising, and outreach. It is a perfect opportunity for undergraduates in all disciplines of engineering, environmental sciences, industrial design, sciences, and business to learn about renewables while making campus more sustainable while inspiring other students. RED is currently involved in 3 projects:
Solar Greenhouse Project with Exceed Solar Inc.
SUB Solar Charging Station with SustainSU
Wind Turbine Design Competition 2020 + Design Showcase
Exceed Solar is comprised of individuals who are passionate about our environment and want to have a meaningful impact on our planet by promoting alternative energy and sustainable living.
Our goal is to help redefine the way society views housing, moving from large, energy consuming structures to sustainable, self contained living spaces that leverage the natural energy of our environment. That’s why we refer to our structures as Sol Spaces.
In providing Sol Spaces, our objective is to enable anyone to experience the freedom of sustainable living, from our backyard Garden Suite, which balances space with greenhouse capacity, to larger Sol Spaces that are self contained living environments that can be located virtually anywhere.
Our objective: “We believe in providing people the freedom of harnessing natural energy by redefining approaches to traditional living spaces.”
