Students will be presenting two projects related to FEW nexus that they have been working on in collaboration with community partners.

Here the idea is to experiment with growing crops below ground-mounted PV modules to provide shade for crops, while saving water and providing a source of renewable energy. The second project, in collaboration with CHISPA, relates to the co-design of household and community level interventions that increase energy efficiency, and improve health and safety for low income minority households in Phoenix.
