Cornell University’s Innovative Transformation of Energy Systems
Cornell faculty and students deploy a network of 15 seismometers for a year-long assessment of background-level seismicity near campus.
Cornell’s campus is where our core education mission and commitment to sustainability intersect. We have a longstanding tradition of using our campuses as “living laboratories” where faculty, researchers, students and staff advance academic research by creating, testing and implementing a variety of solutions to real-world challenges.
Currently, Cornell is exploring Earth Source Heat, which experts believe could create a new renewable energy industry capable of sustainably meeting heating challenges throughout the world. This creates an opportunity for education and engagement on a scale that demonstrates how research innovations might be deployed for regional, national or global benefit.
