Learning to Create Greener Communities

Just how efficient can you make a hydrogen fuel cell? And what are the implications for transportation, home energy needs and more? For decades, Humboldt State has been researching questions like this. Our focus on alternative energy empowers students to create sustainable communities.

Under the guidance of expert faculty, Humboldt State students carry out research on solar, biomass and other alternative energy sources. HSU’s internationally renowned Schatz Energy Research Center has developed hydrogen fuel technology and even operates a hydrogen fueling station on campus. The Renewable Energy Student Union club promotes clean energy technologies, and the Humboldt Energy Independence Fund creates student-driven renewable energy projects on campus.

In fact, there are literally hundreds of classes, clubs and initiatives at Humboldt State that focus on creating a greener, more sustainable future.
