American University reached its goal University set in 2011 to reduce its energy nanotechnology labs, are working to consumption by one third. “Under the find ways to create “smart energy” to guidance of the University energy produce conservation team, this goal was electricity achieved in only two years, reducing (Researchers Use Sunlight). the amount of energy used by 35 help in sustaining energy by using million kilowatt hours annually and nanomaterials to collect saving the University an estimated $2 therefore, million consumption and then turn this solar annually, a one-third reduction in the utilities budget.” (1/3 in Cairo’s renewable fuels from decrease (AUC) and sunlight.” They sunlight fossil fuel energy into the clean fuel Hydrogen.
