Our staff and students are inspired by the need to develop more sustainable eco-initiatives.

Ara works alongside industry partners to provide unique innovations using local materials whenever possible, that are efficient and cost effective. We also develop real world solutions that are typically an innovative integration of existing products.

Reducing carbon footprint by refining wind and solar thermal energy technologies is just one way which Ara staff are assisting the "green" industry and the environment. 

We are interested in sharing research ideas to advance a sustainable and greener future.
