What kind of place stimulates creative minds and sparks a surge of energy innovation? Places that bring people together outside of the traditional 9-to-5 work environment to drink beer, ride bikes and listen to music together. Our town's culture of fun and work innovating on energy is why the Smithsonian Institution named Fort Collins a ''Place of Invention." In the spirit of innovation, we invite you to come learn about the Energy Institute, drink some beer and hang out with fellow colleagues! Energy lnstitute's Executive Director Bryan Willson and Associate Director Jeff Muhs will be on hand to answer questions and tell you more about how you can get involved. We look forward to seeing you at the pub for our second ever Brewski event!... See MoreSee Less

Join us for our next installment of the Energy and Environment Seminar Series!
Cities, large and small, the world over are on the verge of infrastructural modernization. At the heart of this transformation is the need for smart electric distribution systems enabled by an unprecedented access to new technologies, data, controllability, and options for end-users to participate in the daily operations of the electric network. To realize the full potential of this transformation there is a dire need for new architectures, markets, tools, techniques, and testbeds. In that regard, this talk will describe some essential characteristics of a smart infra-structure. Further, the next-generation demand response, an emerging philosophy of asset management in electric grids, will be explored as a potential enabler for the emergence of these smart infrastructures. Some new research results from on-going efforts using high-performance computing at Colorado State University will also be presented.... See MoreSee Less

CSUnite Walk & Community Gathering
CSUnite is an all-university walk and community gathering to stand up for our university principles and demonstrate that CSU is No Place for Hate. All faculty, staff and students, and supporters of our Ram community are encouraged to come together at 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at Newton’s Corner (the sculpture at the intersection of Pitkin and Centre, just south of the Behavioral Sciences Building). The event will begin with opening remarks followed by a short solidarity walk to the Lory Student Center Plaza. At the Plaza, there will be a brief program and opportunities for learning and action.
Purpose of the Event
This event is intended to promote an inclusive campus and to acknowledge we cannot move forward as a community unless we do so together. Organized as a peaceful assembly against hate, CSUnite should not be perceived as an end in itself – the walk and gathering are symbolic gestures that build on the ongoing work across the institution to stand up to ignorance and hate with education, knowledge, and understanding. Throughout this year, CSU has experienced racist and hateful acts, including a noose hung in a residence hall, racist and sexist graffiti, and recruitment activities by white supremacist groups through flyers and posters. We realize we cannot stop all words and actions of hate, delivered with malice, disrespect or disregard, but we can refuse to sit silently and compliantly as a response. This event is just one small step in a long walk we must undertake together to send the message that Colorado State University is No Place 4 H8.*
Where: The event will begin at Newton’s Corner (the large sculpture on Pitkin, just south of the Behavioral Sciences Building) and then proceed to the LSC Plaza.
A group of us from the Powerhouse Energy Campus will take the MAX over to the event at 2:30 pm. Meet in the lobby to walk over with us.
When: Thursday, March 29, 2018, 3-5 p.m.
*“No Place 4 H8” is a campaign that started in Housing & Dining Services and has been adopted campus-wide as a collective message. It embodies the values of CSU’s Principles of Community as a call to action for members of our community to do their part to create an inclusive community for all. As a CSU community, we value different perspectives, experiences and expression of thought. We do not condone or normalize hate in our spaces.
