Sustainability Spotlight

The US finally has a law to tackle climate change

If its policies work as intended, it would push American consumers and industry away from reliance on fossil fuels, penalize fossil fuel companies for excess emissions of methane, and inject needed funds into pollution cleanup.

Plus: what the new federal climate bill means for state policy

In May of 2022 the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) awarded $100,000 in grant funding for solar projects to four research groups through the Accelerator Electrification Challenge Grant.  

Since its inception in 2017, Helios has been involved in much of the “behind the scenes'' work on campus solar projects.

UW–Madison student and Cap Times intern Tyler Katzenberger asks why UW–Madison ranks poorly in sustainability compared with its peers, and what can be done about it.
