Prof. Susan Kinne, director of the Alternative Sources of Energy Project at the Universidad Nacional de Ingeneria in Managua, Nicaragua, will speak on “A Nicaraguan Example: Renewable Energy Applications for Sustainable Communities in Developing Countries,” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2 in the Geneva Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library.
Her talk is free and open to the public.
Kinne is also a professor of engineering and founder-coordinator of Grupo Fenix, a non-profit organization that supports renewable energy and sustainable development in Nicaragua. Much of their work involves solar technology, including solar-powered irrigation systems.
She will speak the following day to students in Scott McKinney's Latin American Studies class and Paul Kehle's Sustainability class.
Her visit was arranged by Jamie Deming, whose husband, David '75, is a member of the HWS board of trustees, which met on campus Oct. 28-30.
