David Weil, MS

This lecture will provide an overview of UC San Diego’s sustainability goals (for example, zero-waste and carbon neutrality). The discussion will include details about the campus’s world-class “microgrid” and how it is helping the university become less reliant on fossil fuels. The presentation will also cover the conversion of the campus’s 900-vehicle fleet to alternative fuels, as well as the many alternative transportation options that are available for campus commuters to reduce their carbon footprints.

Instructor: David Weil is the Director of UC San Diego’s Sustainability & Carbon Neutrality Programs, helping to integrate environmentally sustainable practices into campus operations. He served for 20 years in the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps as an Ocean Engineer and Diving Officer. He has a BS in Civil Engineering and an MS in Ocean Engineering.
