 The Institute for Sustainable Energy offers credit and paid internships for Eastern students. Our interns are a very important part of our staff, assisting with all of our major projects:

  • sustainable5.jpgStudent interns gain experience with energy benchmarking by analyzing energy data from schools, colleges, universities and state buildings. They learn how to enter data into EPA's ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager benchmarking tool.
  • Student interns support Connecticut's Green LEAF School's initiative, assisting with education programs and events, lesson research and design, and writing curriculum.
  • Student interns help with technical support and outreach to Connecticut's colleges and universities on sustainability. This includes assisting with the preparation of campus greenhouse gas inventories and climate action plans, implementing collaborative initiatives for the CT Alliance for Campus Sustainability, and preparation for the Connecticut Alliance for Campus Sustainability round-table events and conferences.
