TSINGHUA WEEK AT BERKELEY – Academic Panel: The Carbon Roadmap: Energy Efficiency for Buildings and Green Electronics


Academic Panel
The Carbon Roadmap:

Energy Efficiency for Buildings and Green Electronics



The Carbon Roadmap project is a multidisciplinary study to develop a trajectory for the energy system transformation from a high-carbon, lowefficiency system to a low-carbon, high-efficiency system, and will serve as a guide for the industries and government policies that will deliver this transition. This two-hour session will be divided into separate, one-hour overview and discussion sessions focusing on Tsinghua and Berkeley resources and potential collaboration on topics in energy efficiency for buildings (1–2 p.m.) and green electronics (2–3 p.m.).

Hosted by: Banatao Institute @ CITRIS and the College of Engineering

The University of California, Berkeley, welcomes faculty, administrators, and students from Tsinghua University to campus for “Tsinghua Week at UC Berkeley 2010.” Tsinghua University, a top-tier comprehensive research university in Beijing, China, has sent a delegation of 130 faculty, administrators, staff and students to Berkeley to participate in events and activities designed to promote research and learning, drawing upon the resources of both universities. Areas of exchanges range from science and engineering to architecture, philosophy, history, public policy, social welfare, and higher education. During the three-day event, departments, schools, and research units on the Berkeley campus will serve as sites of synergy and discussion designed to bridge research and learning across the Pacific and to strengthen ties between the two universities. Student events will highlight university life on both campuses and encourage cultural exchange.
