About Me

Stephanie Becerra
I am a Environmental Science Major with the option in Energy and Climate at Humboldt State University. I will receive my Bachelor of Science degree in the Spring of 2015. I hope to pursue a career in sustainable building and ultimately gain the knowledge and skills required to build my own sustainable home. I strive to increase the momentum of sustainable building so that we can preserve the health of our planet. I would like to work with organizations involved with environmental engineering and sustainable growth.

Interests in Appropriate Technology

  • I would like to understand and apply the appropriate technology we have now in the world to be better equipped in the transition to renewable energy and sustainable building.
  • I believe that the environment is in great danger because of some of the technology we have and I would like to expose its faults.
  • I want to compare and contrast technologies and help the world understand how the energy we use for modern technology can be understood and use can be optimized in a sustainable manner.

Experience in Appropriate Technology

  • My experience in appropriate technology is limited, I know only what I have learned through school. One example is a [Net Zero] project I worked on to help the organization [CCAT] reach net zero in the near future by changing behaviors and replacing old inefficient technology with new technology that is either more efficient and/or runs off renewable energy. There were low end solutions and a high end solution drawn up for implementing net zero at CCAT.
  • The skills I have related to appropriate technology includes knowledge in the processes involved and application of those processes.
  • The resources I have readily available to me are my university, my own knowledge and accessible information via text or web.
