Energy Center of South Bend

Student: Andrew DeSantis, 2017-2018

Sponsor: Ratio Innovation Management, South Bend, IN

We are looking into setting up a Center for Transformational Energy Science, Technology and Analytics here in South Bend. The aim of this center will be to drive and achieve energy innovation. Over the next 11 months we will outline the vision, strategy and operation of this center. We will start with fabricating the energy agenda for this center and outlining the key challenges within the energy industry. We will also establish value propositions for the partners, and identify who the key investors, researchers, stakeholders and partners are that we will need to bring on board to this initiative. Finally, we will develop new and innovative business and engagement models that will underpin this entire operation.
