UMN Energy Club is an interdisciplinary student group, with members from many diverse majors, focused on renewable energy and sustainability. We aim to provide a forum for learning and productive discussion about policy, technology, public health, sociology, ecology, economics, and other aspects of sustainability efforts and renewable energy systems.
Through our two programs of general meetings, the Speaker Series and Sustainability Chats, we help bring students interested in these areas together, connect with industry and academic sustainability leaders, and gain a greater understanding of the many aspects of sustainability challenges our generation is working to solve.
We also help to organize the annual Sustainability and Energy Expo (research and creative project showcase), promote awareness about energy conservation and sustainability through outreach and volunteering, and advocate for sustainability initiatives on the Twin Cities campus and beyond.
UMN Energy Club strives to be a welcoming community for those interested in sustainability and renewable energy. We are an all-encompassing group that focuses on learning from experts about sustainability topics (Speaker Series) and case studies in sustainability and energy topics to create an incubator for critical thinking and creative solutions (Sustainability Chats). UMN Energy Club brings together students and faculty from all colleges, majors, and backgrounds at the University of Minnesota as well as members of industry, academia, and community efforts around the Twin Cities.
