Texas Tech Partners with University of Hertfordshire on Smart Energy Project

Texas Tech is collaborating with IBM and the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom on a research project to study the acceptance and impact of residential micro-generation systems, such as solar-powered technologies and micro turbines, on the public’s understanding and adoption of green initiatives and technologies. The project falls under the umbrella of smart energy, which encourages consumers to take energy conservation initiatives by generating their own power and then selling it back the excess to the grid.
