Engaged Students DAISEE

The Delivering Appropriate Innovative Sustainability Energy Education (DAISEE) trailer is on the move, bringing sustainable and green technologies to events around the state. DAISEE is a mobile trailer that showcases sustainable practices such as fully functioning solar photovoltaic panels, solar thermal panels, a wind generator and green building techniques. Originally designed by the Department of Technology and Environmental Design, the local green building industry and Appalachian State University chapter of the American Solar Energy Society (ASUSES), DAISEE shows off green technology and acts as a mobile outreach station. DAISEE’s hands-on approach allows onlookers a chance to better understand renewable energy and green building techniques. DAISEE continues to make appearances at several regional events, including festivals, trade shows and musical events. More than 150,000 people have visited the trailer to learn about sustainable energy and green building.

As is evidenced by the 40 clubs, organizations and groups that are sustainability focused or related, Appalachian students care about sustainability. These clubs and organizations are dedicated to providing a venue for discussion and activity around the health of our planet, fiscal responsibility and equity for all people.
