Fuel to the Future
University of California Riverside students have developed clean, renewable grid-independent energy for 1.6 billion people currently without the convenience of electricity as part of EPA’s P3 – People, Prosperity, and the Planet—Program, a competition for designing solutions for a sustainable future.
Through P3, they are getting quality hands-on experience that brings their classroom learning to life and may lead to real world applications. The UCR students have created a model that produces efficient, affordable, and sustainable energy. The bonus…..it releases zero emissions!
