The Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (REMRSEC) was founded as a NSF-MRSEC (2008-2016) with significant investment by the Colorado School of Mines to advance photovoltaic and advanced membrane technologies. The center strives to catalyze interdisciplinary research towards renewable energy technologies based on sustainable materials. REMRSEC offers investigators full administrative support and world-class facilities (with technical support) that allow researchers to do research and remove barriers to productivity.
