Center Moves to New Space

DURHAM, N.C. -- The Duke Center for Sustainability & Commerce has moved to new offices in Duke University's Energy Hub.

The Energy Hub is located in the Paul M. Gross Chemical Laboratory, 140 Science Drive, on Duke's West Campus.

The Center joins Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship as well as Energy Initiative staff in the interdisciplinary learning space. The 4,000 square foot area the Center occupies is designed to promote collaboration and innovation, according to Jay Golden, the Center's director.

"The opportunity to be in the heart of the Duke campus--centrally located to faculty colleagues and students in engineering, environmental sciences, business and public policy--is really exciting for the Center," Golden said. "We are very appreciative to Provost Lange for providing a unique space for us to conduct sustainable systems research and to carry out educational programs. The new lab really symbolizes Duke's commitment to sustainability and efforts to put knowledge in the service of society."

Located in room 102H, the new offices and laboratory space include systems modeling stations, a product deconstruction and innovation dry lab, analytic work stations, offices for visiting faculty and sustainable infrastructure simulation software.
