The EnergyRight Solutions for Higher Education program seeks enthusiastic energy efficiency advocates to serve as Interns starting in August 2013 through the end of the Fall 2013 semester. Intern appointments are for one semester with the possibility of reappointment for the Spring 2014 semester.
The EnergyRight Solutions for Higher Education Program seeks to deliver measurable energy savings in campus energy use, and to build an awareness of energy efficiency by educating students, staff, faculty, and the greater community about energy efficiency and the preservation of natural resources. Interns will work as a team to:
- Plan, lead, and mobilize students to execute energy efficiency projects campus-wide;
- Assist with the coordination of an annual faculty forum on sustainability, known as the Appalachia Project, to initiate a formal discussion and ongoing workgroup on infusing sustainability, stewardship and energy efficiency concepts into existing course curricula;
- Work with facilities managers to track campus energy use online and make recommendations for energy efficiency improvements.
