GCEP Research Area - Renewables Image

The sun could provide enough clean, renewable energy to meet the world’s needs many times over. At GCEP, research on renewables focuses primarily on developing both solar and bioenergy technologies. Several research teams are looking for ways to make solar photovoltaics cheaper and more efficient. Another group is developing a novel technology that harnesses both heat and light from the sun. In the bioenergy arena, researchers are exploring ways to create carbon-neutral fuels from plants and microbes. For more information on specific programs, click below.
