Over 150 Mayo Health System employees enjoyed a beautiful fall day to learn more about energy efficiency technologies that are incorporated into the infrastructure of the Luther Campus and to learn about the CVTC mobile energy demonstration lab.
Dr. Lee Mayer welcomed guests and John Dickey, Chief Administrative Officer, followed by talking about the energy initiatives that Mayo Clinic Health System has incorporated into their buildings. Bruce Barker, CVTC President, completed the presentation by talking about the difference CVTC students make throughout the community, and what these same students are learning about renewable energy.
Ten-minute presentations of renewable energy technologies, including solar photovoltaic, solar hot water, small-scale wind, waste to energy, and biofuel production were also given every half hour.
