Project Description

The intern will need be able to work about 4 hours per week. They will create a report that will focus on two or more locations around the world that the Overseas buildings Operations Bureau (OBO) is conducting business. They will research energy related topics such as renewable energy uses in the city, plans the city has to create new technologies, energy regulations or restrictions in the country. The intern must report weekly to the intern coordinator on their research. The cities for evaluation will be either in Australia, Canada, or France. The final report will focus on how real estate and energy in the city are connected with analysis from all the energy uses/ types in the city/ country. The intern is able to adapt the project to one of their class projects if applicable for both parties.

The report should incorporate a short presentation and written report.
