In Oregon Tech’s vision, the Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Consortium (RESG) will bring together partners who share a common goal of promoting and developing renewable energy solutions with the intent of shaping the future energy outlook for the state of Oregon, and potentially, the nation. Working with Oregon Tech through the Consortium, you will be connected to over a dozen faculty members with a wealth of experience in industry, government, and academia and hundreds of regional, national, and global industry contacts. You will also have access to state-of-the-art equipment and research facilities, and a large pool of uniquely qualified student engineering talent in Oregon Tech’s first-in-the-nation Renewable Energy Engineering program as well as our software, mechanical, and other engineering programs.
By participating in the Consortium, you can increase your business network, extend your research capabilities, and build a knowledge base in areas relevant to your organization’s current and evolving needs. You will network with a range of innovators with which you can partner to solve current and emerging challenges for your organization, your industry, and the community.
By leveraging resources, you may be able to help your organization grow and gain market share. Even if your organization is not specifically identified with the energy sector, your business will benefit as broad-scale infrastructure improvements evolve, as the next generation of energy engineers is prepared to meet even greater challenges, as knowledge is disseminated, and as processes are developed that encourage industry-university collaboration and innovation.
The consortium is intended to provide effective solutions to compelling issues by creating a venue for a range of industry partners to develop and implement an alternative energy infrastructure.
