Sustainability Talk

As part of the U.Va  Engineering School’s alliance with SAIC– Science Applications International Corporation- we are hosting a speaker series featuring SAIC leaders discussing the needs and constraints of the energy field.   

Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the fourth lecture in the SAIC Sustainable Energy Future Speaker Series – Friday, Nov. 6  at 3 p.m. in the Mechanical Engineering building, room 205. 

A Renewable Energy Future: Facts, Fiction and Potential by Joe Cohen

Many different predictions and projections of the future use of renewable energy have been developed since the 1970s, spurred by various geopolitical conditions and environmental concerns.  Meanwhile, renewable energy technologies matured to different degrees over that period, and market modeling capabilities have improved as well.  As momentum has recently increased toward building a greener and more secure energy future, a new generation of analyses has been conducted to look at the future potential for different renewable energy technologies and scenarios of energy supply and end use. 

The final energy lecture in this series will be held Dec. 4 in Rm. 50 at the Darden School of Business. For more information, call 924-3310.

This event is FREE and open to the public.  Refreshments will be provided.

Database of the Week: ACS Publications

The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society provides the worldwide scientific community with a comprehensive collection of the most cited peer-reviewed journals in the chemical and related sciences.  In addition to 34 research journals, the society also publishes the premier weekly newsmagazine of the chemical enterprise, Chemical & Engineering News.  With the ACS Journal Archives, ACS Publications provides searchable access to over 130 years of original research in chemistry, including more than 750,000 articles dating back to the inaugural volume of the Journal of the American Chemical Society in 1879.

The peer-reviewed journals of ACS publish cutting-edge articles across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines—agricultural science, biotechnology, analytical chemistry, applied chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, chemical biology, chemical engineering, computer science, crystallography, energy and fuels, food science, environmental science, inorganic and nuclear chemistry, material science, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, pharmacology, physical chemistry, plant sciences, polymer science, and toxicology.

You can learn more about this database from its About Us page or begin searching the database at ACS Publications.
