Averett University and Dalrada Corporation Team Up For a Sustainable and Digitally Advanced Future
September 21st, 2022

Averett University is thrilled to announce a new and exciting partnership with Dalrada Financial Corporation. With a first-of-its-kind agreement and multi-million dollar investment by Dalrada, we will bring extraordinary opportunity to Averett’s campuses and our students.

The University will be leading the way in providing unique access and groundbreaking opportunities to our students for hands-on, immersive experiences that will enhance learning and engagement. We are preparing them for jobs of the future, while also demonstrating environmental and fiscal responsibility by using the latest technologies for energy sustainability and creating the safest and most clean environment possible for all who teach, learn and visit Averett University.

Dalrada Energy Services, a division of Dalrada Corporation, will facilitate Averett’s goal of designing a next-generation campus experience that uses cutting-edge technology and tools that enable the metaverse, powered by Web 3.0 partner, imagineeer. This will include student ownership of digital assets and personalized artificial intelligence, as well as learning and understanding the impacts of digital currency.

Plans surrounding sustainability include taking steps toward achieving carbon neutrality using Dalrada’s innovative technology, including the company’s Likido™ONE heat pumps. The proprietary technology will be paired with digital twining capabilities in the metaverse along with other measures that will optimize energy use across the campus. This will revolutionize the scale and speed at which more sustainable practices can be adopted. These highly efficient energy resources and Web 3.0 solutions will save Averett up to 20 percent in energy costs, while decreasing its carbon footprint to help reach Net Zero goals faster. The university will capture activity data and project future energy usage.

These efforts will drive significant reduction in carbon emissions and deliver savings on energy costs, while also taking the university into the metaverse. Thanks to the immense generosity and ingenuity of our distinguished partners, Averett is leading the way for what campuses will look like in the next 10 years.
