The Verschuren Centre’s approach to clean tech research is simple: focus great minds on immediate challenges. Combining both academic and industry expertise, the Centre examines local energy and environmental challenges that also have global resonance.
That expertise has already met with success: Managing the Verschuren Centre’s energy requirements. Not only does the Centre’s building achieve outstanding reductions in emissions and energy consumption, it also contributes to a campus that is working to provide 100 per cent of its own power through biomass, geothermal, and wind energy.
