Dartmouth Energy Collaborative Energy Lunch Series Kicks off Jan 9

The Dartmouth Energy Collabortive's bi-weekly energy lunch series returns Thursday, January 9 at 12:15 p.m. with Dartmouth Sustainability Director Rosi Kerr giving a talk about the College's energy system. The lunch will be held in Occom Commons, Goldstein Hall and is open to all. 

Other talks scheduled for winter term include:

Thursday, January 23: High-Performance Nickel-Iron (NiFE) Permanent Magnetics for Electric Motors and Turbines with Professor Ian Baker, Thayer School of Engineering
12:15 - 1:15 p.m. — Occom Commons - Goldstein Hall
About this talk: Demand for high-performance permanent magnets for motors is increasing rapidly for applications such as wind turbine generators and motors in electric and hybrid cars. Sm-Co and Nd-Fe-B rare earth (RE) magnets, which have the highest energy product (BH)max of any magnets, are used for such challenging applications. However, RE magnets are very expensive and RE mining has been associated with severe environmental degradation. In this project we aimed to establish a low-cost method to produce bulk L1- structured NiFe, which has magnetic properties comparable to the best RE magnets.
