$300,000 donation from BP includes solar vehicle for UH
Date:1/27/2009

The University of Houston's commitment to green initiatives received a welcome boost Jan. 21 when BP America presented UH President Renu Khator with an environmentally friendly solar utility vehicle as part of a $300,000 donation to the university in support of research and student success.

"We are proud to support the University of Houston's engineering, research, math and science programs as part of its vital efforts to attract and train the students who will become the next generation of engineers and leaders in American business and industry," said Gabriel Cuadra (1988 BSChE), BP manager for compliance. "BP strongly supports UH's outreach to students with diverse backgrounds in seeking the talent and skills for building the economy of the future."

BP's gift was presented by Cuadra and Gerald Balboa, senior vice president for BP North American Gas & Power, as the second installment of a $750,000 pledge the company made in March 2008.

The donation for the Cullen College of Engineering, the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and the C.T. Bauer College of Business will support the university's efforts to recruit and retain diverse students, attract National Merit scholars and support an internship program.

"BP America has made significant investments in the University of Houston that have fueled UH research for more than 30 years," said Khator. "These generous gifts reflect the quality of the energy-related programs at UH, and we are grateful to BP for its continued support of these efforts. We share with BP a social responsibility to find better ways to develop safe, clean and sustainable energy for the future, as well as renewable energy products that reduce environmental impact. This new solar buggy to support our commitment to UH Green initiatives, the environment and renewable energy sources is a great example of social responsibility in action."

The BP solar buggy is equipped with two electric motors w
