UD doctoral student develops tool to monitor water and energy use by hotel chain

A University of Delaware graduate student, participating in a highly selective Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) program, has been recognized for his work in designing a tool to monitor and compare energy and water use at various hotel and resort properties.

Joseph Nyangon, a doctoral candidate in the Energy and Environmental Policy Program in UD’s Center for Energy and Environmental Policy (CEEP), was chosen as an EDF Climate Corps fellow in 2015.

The program embeds highly trained graduate students from top universities in companies and large organizations that are seeking to improve their environmental impact.
