Case Western Reserve University will showcase some of its advanced energy expertise during the 10,000 Visions of Cleveland event: One of the university's booths will be powered completely by a commercially available fuel cell.

Mirko Antioga, director of applied research at the Case Western Reserve Wright Fuel Cell Center, will teach visitors how fuel cells work and share news of the energy alternatives being created through the university's Great Lakes Institute for Energy Innovation during the event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. September 6 at the Galleria at Erieview, 1301 E. Ninth Street.

Case Western Reserve will not only showcase its sustainability initiatives during the expo but also some of its lifestyle and economic development contributions to the community.

Sponsored by the Greater Cleveland Partnership and 10,000 Little (micro) Ideas to Keep You Believing in Cleveland, the 10,000 Visions of Cleveland event features projects and organizations that have helped spark the economy in Northeast Ohio.

A block party on West Sixth Street immediately follows the expo. Tickets are $10. Admission is free to students with a valid university ID. Go to the event Web site for additional information.
