The Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center1 has made a research mission of identifying, launching, and advancing innovative research directions in sustainable materials for renewable energy, meeting its human resource mission of educating the next generation of renewable energy professionals, creating outreach programs to inform the public about the potential of renewable energy, and promoting diversity among faculty, research associates, staff, students, and future students.
The Center harnesses the vibrant energy vision of Colorado School of Mines, the extensive research resources of the nearby National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)2, and the growing national interest to advance the solar, fuel cell and renewable energy technologies and research. The Center integrates cutting-edge basic research with education and outreach, into a powerful interdisciplinary mix to drive new research frontiers. Of particular interest are renewable energy technologies utilizing earth-abundant and sustainable materials.
