The Center for Revolutionary Solar Photoconversion (CRSP) and the Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (REMRSEC) have formed an affiliation designed to add value to both centers and enhance their work on solar energy research.
The relationship between the centers will allow researchers doing work for CRSP to access key equipment and facilities at the REMRSEC and for member companies in CRSP to enjoy briefings on the work being done at the REMRSEC. CRSP will serve as the REMRSEC's industrial partner.
The REMRSEC was announced last fall by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and is located at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM). CSM will receive $9.3 million to establish the center, which will focus on investigating emerging renewable energy materials and technologies.Â
According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), REMRSEC is the first NSF-funded center dedicated solely to renewable energy and includes considerable participation by NREL and some participation by the University of Colorado at Boulder, among other participants.
