Join the Cal Energy Corps students as they reflect on their experiences and lessons learned during their internships across the world. They will share a wide variety of exciting projects - from developing more efficient cook stoves in coastal Nicaraguan villages, to analyzing the world solar PV market in China, to turning waste into biodiesel in Ghana.
The Cal Energy Corps is an undergraduate internship program created to engage the best and brightest students from UC Berkeley in the design, development, and delivery of sustainable energy and climate solutions across the world.
