Jim Rogers, Former CEO of Duke Energy, addresses cleantech professionals, academics and students at the BERC Energy Summit. “Cleantech opportunity today is as great as it has ever been.” That’s how Jim Rogers, Former CEO of Duke Energy, kicked off this year’s BERC Energy Summit on Friday, February 24. Unfortunately, a bright future does not […]
BERC is a huge part of the Berkeley experience for those of us who get involved while at school. We want to continue to create a community that is memorable and that forms ties that last long after leaving Berkeley, that is what the “BERC effect” means for us.
Come visit All Power Labs in Berkeley on Friday April 8th! APL will be hosting BERC for an intimate tour from 4-5pm, followed by an informal chat and presentation over cold beer and hot pizza, baked in a biomass-powered electric oven running off one of their Power Pallets during their Open House from 5-7pm.
In the last 10 years, the Berkeley Energy & Resources Collaborative (BERC) has grown immensely and created a thriving community of interdisciplinary students tackling the world’s most pressing energy and resource challenges. To commemorate it’s 10th anniversary BERC produced a video that summarizes what past and current BERC leaders are thinking about. How will you shape the next 10 years of the energy and resource industries?
BERC’s Welcome Back Happy Hour will be this coming Tuesday, 2/9 at 5:00pm at The Faculty Club. Come mingle with both new and returning BERC enthusiasts for what we aim to be a monthly social event. We’ll have a tab open for a while so come early and enjoy free drinks.

Biomass valorization is a promising field of research that can potentially reduce CO2 production and develop cost-effective sources of renewable energy. Homogeneous catalysis has the potential to give greater access to lignocellulosic biomass as a chemical feedstock for second-generation biofuels from biomass conversion.
