Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Renewable Energy

REU summer 2011


An interdisciplinary team of approximately 30 faculty from the Colorado School of Mines and scientists from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, mentored students in projects addressing the performance of next-generation photovoltaic devices; microstructural design of composite membranes; hydrogen storage in clathrate hydrates; social and ethical implications of climate change, renewable energy, sustainability & education; hybrid energy systems for oil shale production; and optimizing computational tools for energy science. Student “Snapshots” Sessions allowed students to informally share their research results in an open learning environment.
