Sustainable energy research in both engineering and policy revolve largely around the energy system (energy production, transmission, and end-use) as well as all of the contextual factors and policies that encompass these three broad categories.

Contextual Factors and Policies The Energy System
Implementing Sustainable Energy Technologies Energy Production
Economics of Energy and the Environment Energy Transmission 
Urban Planning End-Use of Energy

We are committed to world-class research in addressing real world issues and sustainable energy issues and developing practical solutions. Through CSERC, our research provides a unique platform to expose a new generation of students and professionals to cutting-edge research into scientific, social and political dimensions of transforming the energy sector into a more sustainable system. It is through those students, our future technology and policy professionals, that we will find leadership to design and deploy energy solutions that advance economic and social development locally, nationally and globally.
