PULLMAN, Wash. – Sodium-ion batteries might soon provide a less expensive, viable alternative to lithium-ion batteries thanks to research developed at Washington State University.
PULLMAN, Wash. – Alaska Airlines has committed three million airline miles to WSU faculty, extension employees, graduate and undergraduate students with travel funding needs as part of the company’s three-year sponsorship of WSU’s Imagine Tomorrow program.
In collaboration with William O’Brien from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, assistant professor Julia Day recently published a paper in Energy Research and Social Science, that explores occupant behavior in high efficiency buildings. Their research could lead to better designed and more efficient buildings—that work for their occupants.

PULLMAN, Wash. – Many researchers know that new high-efficiency buildings don’t typically get used as intended. The numbers don’t add up, and occupants can easily waste energy if they do not understand how to use the building.
