UCI Center for Solar Energy

The Center for Solar Energy was established in 2007 to pioneer research in solar energy conversion. Presently, solar energy provides an insignificant fraction (<<1%) of the United States' overall energy needs, and fundamental scientific breakthroughs will be required to change this state of affairs. The mission of the Center for Solar Energy (CfSE) is to study the fundamental scientific principles of solar energy conversion and to educate scientists, students, and the general public about harnessing our most abundant energy resource.
