4 Proposed Charter The purpose of the Green Engineering Program Committee (GEPC) is to promote a holistic, systems approach to improved energy efficiency, sustainability, renewable energy and cradle-to- cradle design. GEPC serves as the AIAA focal point for all green aerospace-related programs and technologies, and works synergistically with the appropriate technical committees to assure that the AIAA membership is adequately informed about all aspects of this critical aerospace activity.
GEPC Activities Hosted a panel session at ASM – Renewable Fuels: Are Biofuels the Future Fuel for Aviation? Identified liaisons for various related committees Recruited members from the Technical Committees Held a Technical Session at JPC – Green Energy Conversion Technologies Coordinated sessions for conferences (ASM, JPC, etc.) Held a Panel Session at JPC – Moving Forward with New Energy Policies Reviewed and contributed to two Key Issues for the Public Policy Committee Proposed a transition from Working Group to Program Committee Authored a year-in-review article for Aerospace America Hosted an Invited Session for ASM 2011 – A Systems View of Energy Efficiency Successfully transitioned from a Working Group to a Program Committee

Climate Monitoring 2. Alternative Fuels & Energy Efficient Aviation Systems Public Policy / Congressional Visits Day
9 GEPC Trends Over the past year, interest in alternative fuels, energy efficiency and the environment has grown substantially. Numerous conferences had green as a central theme, including JPC, Inside Aerospace, NASAs Green Aviation Summit, and many more. Coordinating the AIAA activities to ensure all areas are addressed, while minimizing overlap, will remain a key challenge for GEPC. Ref: calendar/ htm

12 The Green Engineering PC…Why Now? World-wide attention has become focused on sustainability and the need for new approaches to energy generation & utilization. Greener Aviation & Alternative Fuels named top two emerging technologies for AIAA involvement. Individual facets of green technologies represented sporadically in the technical committees, but there is no central focus & systems thinking approach. A PC, with its inherent systems point of view, flexibility of approach, and access to a wide range of expertise, offers AIAA such a focus that would broadly benefit the membership. Other professional organizations are ramping up their involvement in green activities. AIAA needs a clearly defined focal point & should work to become a leader in this growing domain.
13 Scope Serve as the focal point and interface between AIAA and the green technology community, including DOE, EPA, NOAA, and complementary professional societies. Characterize the critical challenges for green technologies as applied to aerospace systems. Identify rapidly advancing & emerging technologies that support improved energy efficiency and sustainability. Support AIAA public policy forums / initiatives and provide a liaison to the Public Policy Committee. Coordinate and focus green activities across the technical committees to develop / support conferences, workshops, position papers, panel sessions and technical sessions. Co-sponsor relevant conferences and events with other professional societies. Identify champions for new green initiatives within AIAA.
14 Objectives Help shape the vision, direction and policy for future energy and aviation systems. Promote sustainable and renewable aerospace-related energy systems. Advocate cradle-to-cradle design and system-level optimization of complex energy conversion systems. Provide a forum in which industry, government, and academia can discuss solutions & approaches in an informal, non-competitive environment. Promote and support conferences, workshops, sessions and technical publications in the area of aerospace-related green technology. Provide efficient and effective knowledge transfer to the AIAA membership. Ensure all relevant aspects of green technologies are represented in the technical committees and conferences.
