Their press release also mentions walking the talk:
"Improving campus energy management will lower energy use and cost, reduce emissions and provide an important learning environment for faculty, students and staff," according to the report. "The ERC recommends a comprehensive assessment of the trade-offs, benefits and costs of different approaches to reducing campus energy use."
Which smells a lot like the Sustainability Strategies for a Green Campus at Clemson University. Come on MIT, I'm glad you're getting with the program and all, but that was so 11 months ago. Anyway, this should be interesting, maybe we'll see some more Wright brothers (Kitty Hawk, NC) type stuff here in the next few years. Let's not let MIT hold all the patents... Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, I'm looking at you.
