The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Sustainability@Wayne seminar on Monday, May 9, 2016 from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.  The guest speaker will be Joe Cresko, technology manager in the Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office. Mr. Cresko will present, “Clean Energy Manufacturing: Frameworks and Methodologies to Anticipate the Impacts of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies."  The seminar will be held at WSU's College of Engineering in the Hall of Fame.  The seminar is free and open to the entire university community; registration is requested. Abstract: Manufacturing of clean energy technologies provides opportunities to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the supply, distribution and use of energy in the fuels, power, buildings, industry, and transportation sectors, and to reduce the environmental footprint of manufactured products across their lifecycles. The Advanced Manufacturing Office at the U.S. Department of Energy catalyzes technology development by strategically assessing and funding research and development of advanced manufacturing technologies that have the potential to be transformational, pervasive, and significant to clean energy.  DOE refers to this as Clean Energy Manufacturing, which involves making things in a manner such that technology provides a competitive advantage over the practices widely in use, and making things such that environmental impact is reduced in the production, use, or disposal of the product made. The university community is invited to Mr. Cresko's talk to learn more about this important topic. A reception will immediately follow Mr. Cresko's talk.
