Energy + Emissions

Energy + Emissions
Dec 4 - 8, 2017
Duderstadt Center Gallery
At the University of Michigan, the energy used to keep the lights on and the buses running goes largely unseen.  This  Energy + Emissions challenge aims to make the university’s emissions visible to those who contribute to them directly or indirectly. Students were challenged to create a tangible visualization of the amount of carbon emissions created by the University of Michigan in the year 2016: 641,000 metric tons or 1,413,161,420 pounds of carbon dioxide. This represents approximately 30% of Ann Arbor’s total emissions footprint.
Projects will be on display Dec 4 - 8, in the Duderstadt Center Gallery. Judging will take place on Wednesday, December 6, between 1-4 pm.
