The Center for Energy Research creates solutions to the growing challenges of energy supply and utilization in our society.


Our vision is to foster research and build visibility for UCSD as an internationally recognized center of excellence in energy research and to solve the energy challenges of the 21st century. Our work spans from fundamental physics and chemistry of nuclear fusion, lasers, and advanced materials to renewables grid integration research on battery energy storage, solar inverters, and solar forecasting.
