nc solar center
NC Solar Center
  • Part of the College of Engineering at NC State University,
  • 100% grant /contract funded
  • Created in 1988 & serves as clearinghouse for information, training, technical assistance and applied research
  • Example programs: solar, wind, biomass, sustainable building, combined heat and power, and clean transportation
clean transportation projects
Clean Transportation Projects
  • OEM APU Prep Kit( U.S. EPA)

Highlights- partnership w Volvo to demonstrate and evaluate 2 APU systems in 20 trucks

  • Clean Transportation (NC State Energy Office)

Highlights- implement 20% petroleum displacement plan requirement for state fleets i.e NC DOT switching to B20 in over 100 stations –over 11mgy

EPAct Credit Banking & Selling Program to provide funds to expand state alt fuel use

  • Diesel Emissions Reduction (Environmental Defense)

Highlights- School Bus Retrofit project

H 1912 ~ State budget has $500,000 for retrofits to serve as cost share for $2.M in CMAQ funding

  • Biodiesel Billboards and Bioheat is Better Campaign (NC Soybean Producers Assoc)
