10 Going

Efficiency Works Business is partnering with the Colorado State University’s Powerhouse Energy Campus to host a summer tour at their facility in Fort Collins on the morning of Tuesday, July 9th, 2024 for our participating service providers.

The state-of-the-art, 100,000-square-foot Powerhouse Energy Campus (PEC) north of Old Town Fort Collins serves as the Energy Institute’s headquarters, primary research facility, and cleantech entrepreneurship hub. PEC is the largest freestanding university-based energy research and entrepreneurship facility in the United States. In addition to incubator space for CSU-aligned start-ups, PEC houses:

    • The Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory (EECL);
    • Indoor/outdoor air quality sensing and testing labs;
    • Smart-grid and small village micro-grid labs;
    • Large-scale thermal energy laboratories;
    • Hydrogen fueling and electric vehicle laboratories;
    • A techno-economic and lifecycle analysis team, and
    • A rapid prototyping laboratory (RPL).

Learn more about the history of the Powerhouse here. This will be an exciting chance to see what kind of technology is being developed for the energy sector by researchers at CSU. A light breakfast will be provided.
