There’s a lot happening in Solar @ MIT. Here are a few of Prof. Buonassisi’s tips for linking up with the solar community at MIT:
- Get connected with the MIT Solar Community, which organizes listservs, events, community, discussions, tours, and speakers.
- Join a Student Group / Club to construct solar homes, cars, and more.
- Take a course: Fundamentals of Photovoltaics (for students) and Capturing the Sun (for outside professionals).
- Have a look at the MIT Energy Club Calendar.
- Keep an eye out for MIT Energy Initiative News & Events and sign up for their energy seminar listserv.
- Attend (or help organize) the MIT Energy Night and the MIT Energy Conference.
- Check out the Harvard Energy Journal Club.
- Send additional tips for plugging into the MIT Solar Community to Prof. Buonassisi!
