Achievement of Commitment

In order to pursue the target of a sustainalbe development, the Università degli Studi “Mediterranea” of Reggio Calabria is currently involved in several research projects on clean energies or carbon emission control, such as:
- future and high-efficiency concentration photovoltaic systems
- frictionless wind generators based on magnetic levitation
- power generation from seawaves and sea water streams
- intelligent and low carbon impact buildings

How this will be achieved

The University has also realized, or is currently commited to realize, the following initiatives:
installation of a low power consuption lighting system within all the university buildings. The smart lighting system is based on fluorescent bulbs which are wireless connected each other for a centralized diagnostic and control
installation of a grid connected photovoltaic plant capable of produncing a peak-power of … kW
installation of grid connected wind turbines, capable of producing overall a peak-power of 300 kW, representing one fourth of the peak electric power requested by the University
