Once you have read up on energy issues and news and have found that topic that grabs your interest and makes you sit up straighter, see where you can get involved at SIU. Browse the ACERC website to discover educational programs, research areas, labs, and more.

3. Take ACTION

As we mention in our FAQ about 100% renewable energy, that kind of a solution is possible but it's not going to happen overnight and it will require EVERYONE'S participation and cooperation in pursuit and implementation of solutions.  Get up and become part of the solution.
