D-Lab Energy ~ New this Spring 2010 @ MIT
D-Lab Energy is the latest addition to the growing MIT D-Lab family of classes. It's targeted at understanding and applying alternative energy technologies in developing countries with emphasis on compact, robust, low-cost systems for generating power. Projects may embrace micro-hydro, solar, or wind and span everything from theoretical analysis, design, prototype construction, evaluation through implementation. One especially cool element is this offering is run in collab with the new Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu Dhabi.
