On the February 24th show, we spoke with Boise State University professor John Gardner about his multifaceted career in energy efficiency. John is currently the director of the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES) Energy Efficiency Research Institute, or CEERI for short. John is also the chair of BSU’s Campus Sustainability Advisory board, serves as a Public Works Commissioner for the city of Boise, and just recently stepped down as the department chair for BSU’s mechanical engineering program. John was awarded the Fellow membership status of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, which served as the impetus for bringing him on the show. We discussed John’s history, his research initiatives for CEERI, how he’s made BSU a more sustainable campus, and what he thinks the future of energy efficiency looks like for Idaho.
