San Jose for the Day

Traveling between Santa Barbara and the Bay Area can be quite a challenge. The lack of accessibility from Santa Barbara to Silicon Valley and the surrounding areas has been a continuing source of frustration for South Coast business travelers.  Commercial airline day trips from Santa Barbara to San Jose and back can cost over $1,000 and eat up to 16 hours with check-ins, security screenings, and transfers.

Santa Barbara Aviation, Inc. is now offering a solution - FlyAirshare.com - to connect the South Coast to Silicon Valley to support the growth of start-up tech companies and bring lucrative development opportunities to corporate programs for UCSB.

FlyAirshare is a convenient and cost-effective, charter air travel option to and from the Santa Barbara area. For example, a roundtrip flight to San Jose, with travel times of three hours, costs as low as $780 round trip per person. There's also a "Trip Board" where community trips can be created and shared between colleagues, family, and friends for other destinations.

The Forth Annual Energy Efficiency Summit

The Santa Barbara Summit for Energy Efficiency, now in its 4th year, has attracted wide attention as a major forum on energy efficiency and sustainability with a special emphasis on the science and technology that catalyzes this field. The 2013 Summit, being held on May 1 & 2, is expected to bring together 300-400 national stakeholders from industry, academia and government to address the latest developments in energy efficiency.


The theme of this year's Summit will be Materials for a Sustainable Energy Future, with U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu giving an opening keynote address, titled, "Materials Science Innovations in Energy Efficiency and Generation." UC Santa Barbara's Institute for Energy Efficiency is dedicated to leveraging the university's faculty, scientists, engineers and researchers to develop cutting-edge science and technologies that support an efficient and sustainable energy future. One of the Institute's goals for the Summit is to inspire ideas and discussions that will spur further innovation and collaboration in the energy efficiency field.
