Portland State University is launching a four-part project to improve energy efficiency and gauge whether green technology can be used to lure new business.
The school will install meters on 21 energy efficient buildings in the SoMa EcoDistrict, one of five neighborhood-level sustainability initiatives in the city. The district includes all of PSU and the commercial strip from Southeast 4th Avenue to Naito Parkway.
Can an aggressive push to improve the energy efficiency of an entire city neighborhood improve its economic development prospects? Portland State University (PSU) will investigate this question and many more with the help of a new $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).
Portland State University has long been a recognized leader in promoting sustainable communities and livable cities.With a spate of high-profile commendations in transportation research, PSU is living up to its reputation.
Portland State University has awarded its first Faculty Research Excellence Awards to James Pankow, Steve Thorne and Ed Zaron in recognition of the originality, impact and productivity of their research programs.
The Office of Research and Strategic Partnerships established the three new awards this year to highlight faculty research accomplishments and the importance of research to the University’s mission. Each award comes with a $1,500 honorarium.
