LoCal-RE is an annual Denmark-California Summer Program that takes place alternately in California and Denmark. LoCal-RE’s program goal is to provide students with first-hand experience of the complex convergence of disciplines that play a role in allowing widespread renewable energy implementation. Through field trips, hands-on experiments, and discussions, the diverse team of students and faculty in the program will return with a broadened perspective on challenges and solutions for renewable energy implementation and an understanding of the importance of interdisciplinary cooperation. Professor Ali Shakouri leads LoCal-RE. UCSC CITRIS provides management to administrative staff and other general staffing support for the LoCal-RE Summer Program.
