Purdue Energy Forum
The Purdue Energy Forum (PEF) is a dynamic student organization exploring the new frontiers of energy issues and solutions, globally and locally. Comprised of Boilermakers concerned about the impending energy crisis, PEF employs its wide network of sponsors, affiliates, industry contacts, similarly minded student organizations, and members to enlighten communities and take action regarding our energy challenges.
Monthly forums, open to the public, see thought-leaders from academia and industry come together to share the latest developments in energy while fostering an open-ended discussion with the audience. The Forum turns these words into action through interdisciplinary and community-focused events. By designing, building, and racing an all-electric go-kart, the PEF evGrandPrix team raises public awareness of alternative transportation and gains valuable technical skills crucial for maintaining our clean energy future. When campus comes alive during Green Week, PEF is there to motivate students and faculty to look for solutions to our energy emergency in their own lives. Past projects have included donating Kill-A-Watt meters to the West Lafayette Public Library, collaborating with Energizing Indiana to provide free home energy assessments, and hosting the Senator Richard G. Lugar Collegiate Energy Summit.
