CEES researchers recognize the inherent complexities of a move to renewable global energy sources. By collaborating across many disciplines, CEES and Wake Forest University are playing an active role in the development of new technologies that will serve as the bridge to a new energy future.
CEES scientists are making discoveries at the leading edge of solar energy and conducting community-based biofuels research. CEES researchers in law and business are exploring the policy frameworks that surround renewable energy implementation and using innovative classroom models to create academic resources for energy law. Affiliates in the life and social sciences, arts, and humanities continue to contextualize our work in this area by researching the impact of current energy models on human societies and ecosystems.
