ERI performs a wide variety of research ranging from very fundamental studies to understand mechanisms of how material perform, to very applied studies that develop energy relevant technologies at the bench scale and transition them to the field.

Projects investigate a wide variety of fields ranging from ultrafast studies of photoinduced charge separation relevant to solar cell development to composite materials for wind turbine blades to development of methods to speed algae harvest times for biofuels.  There is also large variation in the size of projects and in the number of personnel involved.

In order to provide insight into the breadth and depth of ERI research, we provide a link to all active energy grants (to the right) and the links below highlight several projects, some active and some completed, that produced valuable information to the energy research community.
