The SusTech 2017 organizing committee is pleased to announce that two worshsops will be presented at this year’s conference:

  • Mobile Microgrid Training Platform Workshop
  • Makers & Sustainability – Learn the basics of using maker platforms (e.g. Arduino) and tools to create proof of concept solutions to sustainability problems.

Mobile Microgrid

The Laboratory for Energy And Power Solutions (LEAPS) at Arizona State University (ASU) has created workforce development programs to train a new wave of engineers, technicians, and managers needed for the microgrid industry. Hands-on technician training is delivered on-site at ASU and through an extension service using the Mobile Microgrid Training Platform. This platform offers a plug-and-play environment for education with various microgrid configurations to be wired and tested including a generator, solar PV, battery storage, inverters, grid connection, and a microgrid controller. This course will offer PDH credits for those interested.

Makers & Sustainability

In this workshop, receive hands on experience with the Arduino 101, sensors, and Bluetooth LE. Learn the basics of using maker platforms and tools to create proof of concept solutions to sustainability problems. The course will first cover the basics of the popular Arduino environment and its use for simplified embedded programming. Then using a gas sensor, it will explore the integrated features of the Arduino 101 microcontroller, including data collection, on-board computation, and connectivity.

See the workshops page for full details.
