Nadim Rabbani is a senior Mechanical Engineering student at Colorado School of Mines. He is also pursuing a Minor in Energy with the hopes of getting into the solar industry. Before attending Mines, he lived in Houston, TX. He was introduced into the energy industry through IPAA (Independent Petroleum Association of America) in which he studied under them for four years and later interned at Halliburton. In 2012, he was a team manager for the Shell Eco Marathon, a worldwide fuel efficiency competition, in which his team won the Eco Design Award for incorporating a direct electric drive motor and building the entire chassis of the vehicle from bamboo. He was the Project Manager of Mines Energy, the energy club at Mines, and the Treasurer of Wind Energy before becoming President of both.
Nadim has a strong love for his roots which go back to Bangladesh. His goal is to aid the millions of impoverished people who have no access to electricity by developing micro-grids throughout the country. He developed a proposal for Bangladesh to meet all their energy needs with domestic renewable sources by 2050 by incorporating wind, solar, hydro, and biofuels. He also completed a micro solar energy plan meant for rural villages in different regions of Bangladesh. This plan provides people living in rural regions access to electricity at an affordable price to better their standard of living.
