Event Details

Date/Time:

  • Wednesday, October 10, 2012 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Location: North Avenue Research Complex, 495 Tech Way NW Atlanta, GA 30318

Please join the Strategic Energy Institute for a reception in the new Carbon Neutral Energy Solutions Laboratory, located in the North Avenue Research Park Complex. This Platinum LEED-certified, award-winning building will be the nexus of energy-focused research and academic collaboration at Georgia Tech. 

The open house will include a poster session and reception with drinks and light appetizers from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Oct. 10. All Georgia Tech faculty and staff are encouraged to attend, especially those who are interested in energy issues and partnerships. Please RSVP by Oct. 4 to CNES@gatech.edu with a subject line of Yes-CNES@Gatech.edu. 

Parking in the North Avenue Research Complex is limited so carpooling is encouraged. Extra parking may be available at the Technology Enterprise Park, which is across the street from CNES.

The 42,000-square-foot facility is intended to set a new standard for sustainable design for buildings by optimizing passive energy technologies, reducing electricity loads and maximizing the use of renewable energy. It will house a variety of energy research programs requiring large scale (high-bay) and intermediate scale (mid-bay) capabilities. The research focus of the facility will be sustianable energy solutions including high-efficiency combustion engines, biomass gasification kinetics, biochemical-enzymatic conversion of biomass materials and capture of carbon dioxide.
