Alternative Energy Development Group teams with Dr. Scott Testa, The Julian Krinsky Summer Enrichment Program, and Villanova University to teach tomorrow’s leaders Energy Development, Clean Energy Finance, and Entrepreneurship.
The AEDG team, led by members David Magagna Jr. and Jeff Nocella, and supported by Founder & CEO Chris Fraga, teamed with Dr. Testa to teach 8-weeks of summer class as part of the Julian Krinsky curriculum for business students. Specific topics included: Renewable and Alternative Energy Technologies featuring Solar PV and Bloom Energy Fuel Cell’s; Energy Development for the Commercial and Industrial market; and Energy Finance including the Power Purchase Agreement business model.
Each week a group of students engaged in a combination of lectures, field trips to visit live Solar PV and Bloom Energy Fuel Cells in operation in the Philadelphia area, and case study/presentations by the students. The camp’s domestic and international student population was able to learn and apply newfound energy knowledge to specifics of their home countries from China, Panama, Colombia and Germany among others..
“The enthusiasm, intellect, and insights generated by the students has been overwhelming” commented David Magagna Jr., AEDG’s leader of the program. ”Students are concerned about our world’s sustainability and future and appear eager to promote clean energy going forward.”
Dr. Scott Testa led the Julian Krinskly Business curriculum, and invited AEDG to participate because of their subject matter expertise, innovative ideas and entrepreneurial success. “I requested AEDG to participate to bring outside of the box thinking, topics of relevance to a global student base, and their passion to create a memorable experience”, said Dr. Testa.
AEDG’s charitable “give-back” program includes Community Education at the middle, high school and collegiate level.

White House Blog: Can a modern company be both financially successful, socially responsible, and environmentally friendly?
SolarSense was selected to host one of one-hundred sessions across the country titled: “Winning the Future Roundtable with American Business”, organized by The White House Business Council. President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address, which included an imperative that America must “win the future”, was the genesis of the roundtables. Senior Administrative officials are chairing roundtables across the country in order to hear directly from business leaders on how the current administration can help their companies grow, create US jobs and expand America’s competitiveness in the global theater. Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Administrator of The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), chaired the Radnor, PA session, which was attended by 19 business executives and Dr. Lubchenco’s staff.
