Energy That Works Series

The NC Clean Energy Technology Center’s Energy That Works Series is a project supported by the North Carolina State University Sustainability Fund.  The project’s goal is to facilitate meaningful dialogue across disciplines about the importance of clean energy and its role in creating a sustainable future, and increase coordination among energy efforts at NC State University.

The project includes a Field Trip Series, Renewable Energy Training Program, a student internship opportunity at NCCETC, and a creation of planning group meetings comprised of students, faculty and staff to support planning and outreach.  Check out activities that are coming soon below!

Spring Break Fundamentals of PV Design and Installation (REPV) Training

You will receive more information about NABCEP and the exam in class. If you have questions beforehand, contact Megan Berry at or 919-513-4790.
