Join us at noon in Koelbel 220 this Friday the 13th we will be looking at Nuclear Energy, which seems to scare a lot of people. The discussion will be on the negative aspects of the last generation of nuclear reactors and the promise of new Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTR's) and learn how they work!
Of course we will have lots of other videos on hand for wherever the conversation ends up going. As always, free Half-Fast subs!

The CU Energy Club has recently been invited to submit abstracts for the 2nd Annual Future of Transportation case competition, hosted by the Fuels Institute, a multi-industry think tank. The challenge of this competition is comprised of two parts: (1) "to envision and create an ideal future transportation (mass transit and consumer vehicles) sector," and (2) "take that vision and [explain how to] make it a reality within the next 30 years based on the current infrastructure of America." Last year, 12 universities were asked to submit proposals after their abstracts were accepted. This year, we would like to pursue CU Boulder sending a team! This effort will likely involve collaboration with other clubs and be quite the challenge. If we get substantial support from CU Energy Club members, we can support the organization of a team. Please note that the statements of intent (i.e. abstracts, up to 3 per team) must be submitted by MONDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2015. If an abstract is accepted, teams must submit their final proposals by FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2016.

Please fill out this GOOGLE FORM by MONDAY, 11/9 if you are interested: (note that this interest is non-binding)

Find out more info about the competition, including rules and a more detailed timeline, HERE:

Hi everyone! This is a reminder about our MONTHLY MEETING TONIGHT 11/2 at 5:00 PM. Our guest speaker, Uli Kappas, is from ProvidIce and will talk about his company's intent to identify, capture, tow, deliver and process large free floating tabular Antarctic icebergs in order to harvest and sell their high quality potable water and energy content. They believe this new water and energy resource technology can be a major contributor in the support of more efficient use of the earth's resources systems and be a noticeable contributor in controlling global warming. Come join us for an interesting talk and, of course, free Cosmo's pizza!

Hope to see you there!
