NC State’s Sustainability Awards were recently announced during the Celebration of NC State Sustainability.
The NC State Energy Storage Team was the recipient of this year’s NC State’s Sustainability Innovation/Impact award. The departments of agricultural and resource economics, public administration, electrical engineering, civil engineering, and NC Clean Technology Center were part of the project team. The aim of the completed report is to guide the NC General Assembly as it develops storage-related energy policies for the state. The team was a collaboration between NC State, NC Central University, and NC Policy Collaboratory. Read more about the award and the project participants here.
