Abstract

Our great problems seminar team has developed a plan to educate our community on how to be sustainable, specifically focusing on the charging of personal electronics in order to reduce energy consumption. Through personal energy logs, surveys, energy and psychology research, and the study of different energy saving applications, we are developing a way to teach the community and encourage sustainable behavior. Our awareness program will be implemented on WPI’s campus by placing small notes, which have energy saving tips on them, near frequently visited areas to encourage students to be more energy efficient.
