Angelo Campus electrifies the renewable energy business with BoxPower

Access to reliable power is a critical concern for hundreds of millions of people worldwide, from those living in remote communities without public utilities to entire regions susceptible to severe weather and natural disasters.

Since his graduation in 2016, Princeton alumnus Angelo Campus has worked to ensure anyone needing quick and dependable access to a power source can find it in a simple configuration: a shipping container equipped with solar panels, a battery for energy storage and a backup generator.

His company, BoxPower, builds and distributes these units — what are known as containerized microgrids — and has deployed them in places like Puerto Rico, which lost electrical infrastructure in 2017 due to Hurricane Maria, and the Alaskan backcountry, where Alaska Natives live far removed from electrical power sources.

Workers set up a microgrid, complete with solar panels

Workers assemble one of BoxPower’s containerized microgrids. They are built to be easily deployed, especially in areas where electricity is unavailable.

Harvard Square Businesses Reckon with Fewer Customers on Campus | News

Weeks into the fall semester at Harvard, businesses in Harvard Square are grappling with a significantly smaller customer base.

The start of the school year typically marks the influx of thousands of students into Harvard Square, but this year the University is welcoming just roughly 25 percent of undergraduates back to campus.

Adam DiCenso, the owner of Pinocchio’s Pizza, said the fall typically brings a surge in customers to his restaurant.

“Years past, under sort of, quote unquote, normal circumstances, we would go from July being relatively quiet and then September, when all the undergrads would come,” he said. “We would get absolutely steamrolled with business.”

“That didn’t happen this year,” he added.

Duncan Browne, director of field operations and business administration for Newbury Comics, also said the start of the fall semester is usually a very busy time.

“Late August and September, historically, for us, has always been a

Stepping forward: UNCG unveils its newest campus master plan | Education

In the master plan’s six-to-10-year time frame, possible projects include additions to the Weatherspoon Art Museum and the Bryan School of Business and Economics and construction of a second new science building. The master plan also calls for replacing the Eberhart Building, a science facility to two of UNCG’s most popular majors, biology and psychology. That building turns 50 next year.

The new master plan calls for relocating the School of Health and Human Sciences to one of these proposed new science buildings because the school’s nine departments are scattered throughout campus. About 20% of UNCG’s students are enrolled in the health and human sciences school, which is the university’s third-largest academic division after the College of Arts and Sciences and the business school.

Further-out projects include millennial campus buildings along West Gate City Boulevard, one new residence hall and an addition to an existing dorm.

Designed by Blackbird Studio Architects, the project will include office, showroom and warehouse space.

Construction is set to start on the project next month, said Pennington CEO Jackie Pennington.

A plan to develop University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee research buildings in Wauwatosa would be replaced by a privately developed business park under a proposal endorsed Monday by county officials.

Development firm Irgens Partners LLC wants to buy from a UWM affiliate about 29 acres at the Innovation Campus site, east of I-41 and north of West Watertown Plank Road. The firm would pay $5.25 million for the land.

Irgens Partners has conceptual plans to develop a pair of four-story, 140,000-square foot buildings, a two-story, 50,000-square-foot building, a single-level parking structure and a possible future building.

UWM’s original plans for Innovation Campus, approved in 2009, envisioned a new College of Engineering and Applied Science Campus, and other developments. An

Developers plan mixed-use site at former HP campus in east Vancouver

At its peak in the 1990s, the former HP corporate campus in east Vancouver was one of the busiest office sites in the city, hosting more than 2,500 employees. But the company’s local employee count fell steeply in the following decade, culminating in HP’s 2009 decision to move to a smaller office and sell the campus to silicon wafer manufacturer SEH America.

Since then, the campus certainly hasn’t languished — it’s become a primary or satellite home for a variety of tenants, such as telecom company Allstream and engineering firm Sigma Design — but it also hasn’t managed to recapture the level of occupancy and activity that it once enjoyed.

Marc Esrig and Ron Schinik say they have a plan to change that.

The two real estate developers announced this summer that they had reached a deal to acquire the property through their New York-based development firm New Blueprint Partners.

Facebook Campus Hotel a Bet on Comeback for Business Travel

(Bloomberg) — Corporate travelers, typically back on the move after Labor Day, are still hunkered down at home, with little telling when they’ll start seeing clients again or if the embrace of video conferencing will end the need to get on the road at all.

It’s a chilling prospect for the hotel industry, which leans heavily on corporate travel departments to fill rooms at full rates. Still, some are banking on a big future for business travel.

CitizenM, a Dutch lodging brand backed by Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, is moving ahead with plans to open its tech-forward boutique hotels across the U.S. It’s a bet that remote work will actually increase the need for employers to bring scattered staff together.

“The world is a different place now, but the demand generators we would have had pre-pandemic have only gotten bigger,” citizenM managing director Ernest Lee said in an
