Tempe campus receives 6 electric vehicle charging stations


March 14, 2012

Arizona State University’s Parking & Transit Services (PTS) is partnering with ECOtality, a leader in clean electric transportation solutions, to provide six, Level 2 Blink electric vehicle (EV) charging stations on the ASU Tempe campus.

“Integrating electric charging stations for use on the ASU Tempe campus is a component of the university’s commitment to achieving its carbon neutrality goal by 2025, and conveys to our surrounding communities that we are implementing the sustainability practices that we advocate,” says Ray Jensen, associate vice president of University Business Services and the University Sustainability Operations officer.

The stations are scheduled to be available for use on March 14, and will be located on the Tempe campus at Packard Drive South, the Fulton Center and the Tyler Street Parking Structure. Each Blink charging station can charge one EV at a time.

Once the stations are operational, ASU will be the largest public university in the state of Arizona to house such charging facilities.

“With the federal government increasing the new vehicle average mile per gallon to more than 50 MPG, a nationwide network of electric charging stations will increasingly become important,” says Raymond Humbert, associate director, Parking and Transit Services. 

Students, faculty and staff will have free access to charging stations with Blink access cards, which PTS will issue at their Tempe campus University Towers office. Visiting electric vehicle owners who are member of the Blink system also will be able to access the charging stations on the ASU Tempe campus. Thanks to a federal grant, electric vehicle owners will be able to charge their vehicles without paying for the cost of electricity.

ECOtality manages The EV Project and will oversee the installation of approximately 14,000 commercial and residential charging stations in 18 major cities and metropolitan areas in six states and the District of Columbia. The project will provide EV infrastructure to support the deployment of 8,300 EVs. The project is a public-private partnership, funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy through a federal stimulus grant and made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

ASU, EAC partnership to expand access to education in Arizona


March 7, 2012

A new partnership between Eastern Arizona College (EAC) and Arizona State University was celebrated during a kickoff event on March 6 at the EAC campus in Thatcher, Arizona. EAC President Mark Bryce, a long-time advocate for quality education programs for the communities of Eastern Arizona, said the future is now, to about 700 people who attended the event in EAC’s auditorium.

“We live in an age with great challenges, but we also live in an age with the greatest opportunities,” Bryce said addressing students in the crowd. “A great education will take advantage of the opportunities and allow you to make a difference for the positive.”  man speaking at podium Download Full Image

EAC serves the higher education needs for three counties – Graham, Greenlee, and Gila in east central Arizona. The new program will help bring on-site Pac-12 quality bachelor’s degrees to EAC students through this partnership with ASU, and is expected to become an innovative model for bachelor’s degree completion throughout the state.

For ASU, the agreement is about access, meeting community needs and improving the state of Arizona, said ASU President Michael Crow.

“We are here to help expand access to education in Arizona,” Crow said. “ASU is committed to the success of the state, the community and to this college.”

Students will be able to complete several bachelor’s degrees entirely on-site at EAC’s Thatcher campus, starting with two degrees in fall of 2012. A Bachelor of Science degree in nursing (BSN) and a bachelor of interdisciplinary studies (BIS) in organizational studies are the initial offerings.

“For nursing, we set up this program with an eye on students currently enrolled at EAC,” said Maria Hesse, ASU’s vice provost for academic partnerships. “But we also want to attract local nurses who are interested in going back to school to get a BSN and continue with their education.”

The BIS degree is good for business organizations, faith-based organizations, non-profits and government, said Elizabeth Capaldi, executive vice president and provost of ASU. In the fall of 2013, two additional degrees – one in elementary education and another in operations management – will be added.

Over time, students will have the option to complete their associate’s and bachelor’s degrees at EAC in nursing, business/organizational studies, elementary education, operations management and more. All of these majors have been specifically targeted to address employment needs in Eastern Arizona.

“EAC provides high quality college programs in beautiful facilities, with wonderful faculty,” said Hesse. “By sharing resources, we can offer the degrees at a lower cost so we anticipate this new model will be appreciated by parents and community leaders.”

Playing off the two schools mascots (Sun Devils and the Fighting Gila Monsters), Crow added, “Monsters and Devils are finally together.”

ASU helps state attract venture capital for high-technology firms


February 20, 2012

Heliae, a technology-development company based in Chandler, is working to design an industrial process that starts with the creation of high-fat strains of algae and ends with the production of jet fuel and other commercial products.

Fluidic Energy, located in Scottsdale, is dedicated to transforming the way electricity is generated, delivered and consumed through an innovative energy storage approach. Its core technology enables a lower cost and its high energy density delivers ultra-long run times in comparison to traditional batteries. Download Full Image

Both young companies are recipients of the more than $45 million in venture capital that was invested in ASU spin-out companies last year made possible by working with Arizona Technology Enterprises (AzTE), the exclusive intellectual property management and technology transfer organization for ASU.

AzTE works with faculty, investors and industry partners to speed the flow of innovation from research laboratory to the marketplace. ASU faculty submitted a record 187 invention disclosures in fiscal year 2010.

While Arizona has always struggled to attract venture capital, the state managed to pull a rank of 16th in the nation this year, for venture capital dollars invested by state, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. Arizona drew $247.5 million in 2011, compared to only $83 million in 2010. 

This is still below the national average on a per capita basis, according to Tom Rex, research administrator at the Seidman Research Institute at the W.P. Carey School of Business. Arizona has a lot of catching up to do, making ASU’s role all the more important.

Venture capitalists invest in firms that have a high potential for growth but are not ready to do an initial public offering of stock. Venture capital activity can be used to measure the number of potentially high-growth firms being started, which typically are innovative high-technology firms, such as biotechnology enterprises.

AzTE actually managed to secure funding for five spin-off firms, though three did not maintain a presence in Arizona. Most venture capitalists want the firms they invest in to locate near them, says Charlie Lewis, ASU vice president of venture development.

"It's a testimony to the quality of research coming out of ASU that these five companies were able to attract venture capital funding," says Lewis. "Arizona continues to struggle with the fact that few venture capital funds are located here.

"Venture capital is very important to the country as a whole. We need folks who are willing to take risks on early stage technology that is promising but unproven. Otherwise many innovations may never make it to the marketplace."

ASU also played a significant role in the launching of a new Arizona-based venture capital fund last year, Greener Capital. AzTE helped the firm connect to ASU researchers and also is a limited partner in the fund.  The company opened an office at ASU SkySong last year.

"Our new relationship with AzTE is a natural fit, because we focus on early-stage entrepreneurs who offer unconventional, even radical solutions to major problems in the production and management of energy," says Thomas Cain, a partner. "Arizona State University has a wealth of research taking place to address breakthrough solutions to our energy needs."

ASU solar program shines, tops 14.5 megawatts


February 13, 2012

Visitors to the Valley of the Sun who peer out their airplane windows while flying into Sky Harbor International Airport can see the glimmer from nearly 2,100 solar panels perched atop Wells Fargo Arena. The nearly 500-kilowatt installation lets the world know that ASU’s passion for harnessing the Sun’s rays and commitment to employing renewable energy continues moving forward.

The Wells Fargo Arena installation became active exactly two months after a solar structure came online at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication on the Downtown Phoenix campus. The 77-kilowatt Cronkite system marks ASU’s third campus of four to begin generating solar energy and was commemorated with an early-December event attended by officials from the City of Phoenix, Arizona Public Service and ASU. Download Full Image

The Fall 2011 semester marked bright times for ASU's solar initiatives. In early August, ASU announced construction plans for the PowerParasol – a 5.25-acre, first-of-its-kind solar-panel project by Arizona-based Strategic Solar Energy, LLC – designed to shade 800 parking spaces in Lot 59 on the Tempe campus. The PowerParasol came online in late December and the shaded space under the structures now is open for parking.

In early September, ASU surpassed 10 megawatts of total solar energy generating capacity when the 700-panel, 168-kilowatt Verde Dickey Dome structure became active on the ASU Tempe campus. The 10-megawatt pinnacle boosted ASU’s leadership in higher education for solar energy generation in the United States. To mark the momentous achievement, the university celebrated 10 megawatts with a ceremony attended by fiscal and energy partners at the ASU West campus.

A month later, ASU was named the Solar Partner of the Year by the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA). The award was created by SEPA to recognize the value that a solar partner can bring a utility in the development and/or implementation of a solar project.

At the end of 2011, ASU had 55 systems comprised of more than 58,000 panels with the capacity to generate 14.5 megawatts of solar energy. The support of third-party business partners who have invested more than $121 million into ASU’s solar program has been critical to reaching this leading position in higher education solar power production. These financial commitments ensure that the university has a reduced capital investment over time.  

The university’s leading solar energy-generation capacity also is made possible in part by the APS Renewable Energy Incentive program for our Tempe, Downtown Phoenix and West campuses. Our first solar projects at the Polytechnic campus currently are under way and mark a new venture with Salt River Project (SRP). ASU is poised to reach 15.3 megawatts before the end of the Spring 2012 semester and will have solar installations operating on all four campuses and at the ASU Research Park.

Since ASU introduced the first 34-kilowatt solar panel system to the Tempe campus in 2004 on the Tyler Street parking structure, the university has made tremendous strides in its solar program. As ASU continues toward its 20 megawatt goal in 2014, it upholds a pledge to reduce its carbon footprint and implement sustainability-minded solutions into the campus community.

Waste Management, ASU aim to eliminate solid waste


January 26, 2012

Waste Management of Arizona and Arizona State University have announced their collaborative program “Roadmap to Zero Solid Waste” that aims to eliminate 90 percent or more of ASU’s solid waste by 2015.

The program is being developed in three phases including waste assessment, roadmap development and program implementation. It includes all four ASU campuses – Tempe, West, Polytechnic and Downtown Phoenix.     Download Full Image

Waste Management already is working with an ASU team to assess the university’s complete waste-collection processes, waste generation and material conveyance. Waste Management dedicated an on-site project manager and two student interns to provide continual guidance and direction throughout the roadmap development process, including the execution of the waste-elimination plan.

“Harnessing the expertise of the Waste Management team will enable us to properly align our resources within ASU sustainability operations to achieve our zero solid-waste strategies,” said Ray Jensen, ASU associate vice president University Business Services and university sustainability operations officer. “We are fortunate to work with Waste Management on a ‘Roadmap to Zero Solid Waste’ to keep us on track to our 2015 zero solid-waste goal.”

The objectives outlined in ASU’s current 2015 zero-waste strategy include averting 30 percent of campus solid waste from the landfill and diverting 60 percent. The ASU community can help meet aversion goals in several ways by reducing consumption.

Landfill-waste diversion includes recycling, repurposing, reusing and composting practices. Waste-related operations at each of the four ASU campuses including generation trends, collection flow, container and compactor placement, front and back of house solutions and the final waste elimination processes are key areas for solid waste diversion measures.

“Waste Management’s goal is to extract the maximum value from the waste stream, and we are a company that is truly committed to turning waste into a resource,” said Pat DeRueda, Waste Management of Arizona-New Mexico area vice president. “We are proud to work with ASU, a leader in sustainability, to help them achieve their Zero Waste initiatives.” 

Waste Management has provided collection, processing, recycling and transport services of waste materials to Arizona State University since 2007.

ASU, SRP partner on 1MW solar power plant


January 10, 2012

Salt River Project (SRP), Arizona State University and SunPower Corp. have announced an agreement to build a 1-megawatt solar photovoltaic power plant at ASU’s Polytechnic campus in Mesa, Ariz.

The facility will be the first commercial deployment of SunPower C7 Tracker technology, a solar photovoltaic tracking system that concentrates the sun’s power seven times, designed to achieve the lowest levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) for solar power plants available today. Download Full Image

SunPower is engineering and constructing the plant on the southeast corner of the ASU Polytechnic campus, and will operate and maintain it. Under a purchase-power agreement, SRP will buy the entire output of the solar plant from SunPower and, in a separate agreement, ASU will purchase all of the energy attributable to the plant for use at its Polytechnic campus.

The plant is expected to produce an amount of energy equal to that needed to serve about 225 SRP customers’ homes, will require minimal water use and supports ASU’s renewable energy goals. Construction of the plant is contingent on a number of factors, including receipt of all applicable permits.

“The installation of SunPower’s ground-breaking technology helps move ASU closer to our 2014, 20-megawatt solar energy-generating goal,” said David Brixen, ASU’s associate vice president of Facilities Development and Management.

As of Dec. 31, 2011, ASU was generating 14.5 megawatts of solar energy. “This dynamic project with SunPower enables us to embrace innovative technologies and also facilitate possible education opportunities for our students,” said Brixen.

“As we continue to add resources to our sustainable portfolio, SRP is very interested in finding new low-cost and efficient renewable-energy technologies that can help keep our customers’ prices low,” said John Sullivan, SRP’s chief resource executive. “SunPower’s C7 Tracker System is the type of promising technology that can provide both benefits.”

The C7 Tracker combines single-axis tracking technology with rows of parabolic mirrors, reflecting light onto 22.8 percent efficient SunPower Maxeon solar cells, the world’s most efficient large-area solar cells. Using mirrors to reduce the number of solar cells required to generate electricity will lower the LCOE by up to 20 percent compared to competing technologies. For example, the 1-megawatt C7 Tracker power plant at ASU will require only 172 kilowatts of SunPower solar cells.

“The SunPower C7 Tracker leverages SunPower’s depth of experience developing reliable tracking systems and delivers bankable technology with guaranteed performance,” said Howard Wenger, president, regions, of SunPower. “We applaud our partners on this project in selecting this advanced technology platform that will deliver cost-effective renewable energy for the long-term.”

The ASU solar plant will be the third commercial-scale solar facility in the Valley of the Sun to provide energy for SRP. Recently, SRP reached an agreement to purchase the output of a 19-megawatt solar photovoltaic plant in Queen Creek. Copper Crossing – a 20-megawatt facility located in Pinal County and designed and built by SunPower – began providing energy for SRP’s Community Solar program last year. More than 100 schools in 11 Valley school districts are tapping into the power of the sun from that plant to offset a portion of their electric needs through the program.

Community Solar is also open to residential customers, allowing customers to invest in solar energy without the upfront costs or maintenance of a rooftop system.

The SRP board of directors has set a goal to meet 20 percent of SRP’s retail electricity requirements through sustainable resources by the year 2020.  The goal increases each year until 2020. For the most recent fiscal year, SRP exceeded the 5 percent goal, providing about 9 percent of retail energy needs with sustainable resources including wind, solar and geothermal energy, hydro power and conservation and energy-efficiency measures.

'The Business of Sustainability' presents 'green' blueprint


December 14, 2011

What does the future of business look like in a sustainability-minded world, and how do we get there are two among many questions addressed in the three-volume set, "The Business of Sustainability: Trends, Policies, Practices, and Stories of Success."

A dozen chapter contributors from ASU essentially helped to develop the first integrated presentation of the business of sustainability. The books were published in November 2011 and bring together more than 70 experts who specialize in several industries. The volumes’ editors include Scott G. McNall, who joined forces with fellow editors who hail from ASU: George Basile, a professor in the School of Sustainability, and James C. Hershauer, an emeritus professor of management. Download Full Image

According to Hershauer, the editors teamed up to produce the books because they collectively saw fragmentations in the approaches businesspeople were making when engaging in sustainability discussions.

The volumes begin with the notion that the science of sustainability is increasingly understood and being developed, and continue with an enhanced understanding of where global business is headed while offering straightforward business models that easily can be facilitated into operational structures.

“Readers become familiar with the large scope of global, regional and local challenges, opportunities, risks and solutions associated with managing all dimensions of sustainability in today’s dynamic business environment,” Hershauer said.

One example that supports the editors’ mission of enhancing sustainability-minded business practices is how mimicking the behaviors of living organisms can help industry leaders learn how to become more resourceful. The country’s second-largest microbrewery – the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company – is off the grid, has approached a zero-carbon footprint, and demonstrates another instance of how sustainability practices can successfully affect supply chains. "The Business of Sustainability" readers, however, do not need to be well-versed in sustainability, or have a preexisting knowledge of how businesses function to fully grasp the fundamentals provided in each volume.

“There are explorations of key concepts combined with practical examples that provide everyone the frameworks necessary to integrate sustainability-minded practices effectively into their businesses,” says George Basile, professor of sustainability. “I am pleased that the ASU community has contributed to a body of work that can bring business into a sustainability-conscious model for almost any business one can imagine.”

Following are short, individual volume descriptions that include the names of the ASU-associated contributors in addition to chapters by Hershauer and Basile:

Volume I: Global Challenges and Opportunities covers the scientific, economic, and social underpinnings of sustainability and identifies the challenges that business leaders face. ASU contributors include: Adelheid Fischer, Robert E. Mittelstaedt Jr., and Adrian A. Smith.

Volume II: "The Global Web" explores the global network of designers, producers, suppliers, distributors, and consumers that must be addressed as one system from a cradle-to-cradle, life-cycle perspective. ASU chapter writers include: Brad Allenby, Phillip L. Carter, Mark Edwards, and Dan L. Shunk.

Volume III: "The Road to Sustainability" provides examples of success across many industries that together demonstrate sustainability success can and must be accomplished now. Chapter authors from ASU include: Bonny Bentzin, David Brixen, Mark Edwards, Ray Jensen, Dan O’Neill, and John Riley.

"The Business of Sustainability: Trends, Policies, Practices, and Stories of Success" can be ordered on the ABC-CLIO website.
