Sustainable Wind Energy Harvesting
Drs. Frank Gross, Youakim Kalaani, and Rami Haddad in the Electrical Engineering Department received a Georgia Southern University Sustainability Fee grant entitled: “Sustainable Wind Energy Harvesting from Campus AC Cooling Towers/Chillers” for $11,014.88. This was one of 11 proposals funded out of 25 submitted campuswide. The proposed research will place wind turbines over GSU campus cooling towers. The turbines will generate electricity that can be returned to the power grid or can be used for charging university electric vehicles.
