UC Thermal Storage will be a joint meeting with the Association of Facilities Engineers to tour UC's new athletic practice facilities including their new indoor bubble. A thermal storage system is located under the half practice field to help reduce UC's peak electric demand by 5000 kW.

You can park on one of the side streets near campus or in one of the 2 pay lots very close-by. Directions below are to Calhoun Garage. After parking in Calhoun Garage, walk back down (west) on Corry, then left (north) on Champions to West Charlton.
