Energy

As home to both the Center for Clean Energy Engineering (C2E2) and the Fraunhofer Center for Energy Innovation (CEI), UConn’s faculty expertise and resources in the field of energy are extensive. C2E2 serves as a nexus for activities involving fundamental and applied research in clean and efficient energy systems and strives for the transformation of science to systems by taking theoretical and laboratory expertise and applying it to industrial challenges. The Center houses equipment for prototype manufacturing, fuel cell assembly, materials characterization, and fuel cell testing and diagnostics.
