Editorial recognizes A&T green energy research

One more media note: A News & Record editorial on Sunday singled out green energy research as a key investment for Greensboro’s economy.  The editorial noted the volume of research conducted by the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, work of A&T researchers to help the Proximity Hotel gain its Platinum LEED certification, A&T spinoff company Advaero Technologies and Dr. Abolghasem Shahbazi’s work in alternative energy, among other projects.  Some nice recognition for one of the particularly strong areas of research at N.C. A&T.
