Maxwell School Students Help City of Oswego, US Virgin Islands

The EFC and SyracuseCoE continue their important partnership with the Maxwell School of Syracuse University through the graduate capstone project, a four-week intensive research and development project that caps the one year Masters of Public Administration program.

Supporting SyracuseCoE’s clean and renewable energy focus area, SyracuseCoE and EFC engaged a Maxwell capstone student team that collaborated with the school’s Center of Environmental Policy and Administration to develop a sustainable energy plan for city of Oswego in Central Upstate New York.

A second capstone project looked at the development of wind power on the US Virgin Islands, which is part of the EFC’s US Environmental Protection Agency Region 2 catchment. For this project, students researched and developed wind power policy directives that the US Virgin Islands’ government can use regarding the siting of wind energy facilities.

SyracuseCoE and the EFC continue working on projects in the Virgin Islands, providing opportunities for Partners such as Clarkson University and Syracuse University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science.
