Renewable Energy Research Group
The Renewable Energy Research (RER) group engages in cutting edge research and development with the aim of advancing renewable energy technology. Members of this group include top Wake Forest faculty and researchers from the Departments of Chemistry and Physics, in addition to numerous external collaborators. The projects they work on are at the forefront of alternative energy development. The projects within the RER group run the gamut from incubational to commercial stage but each holds the potential to make significant contributions to the advancement of energy related technology.
Examples of current RER projects include the development of novel lithium-ion solid electrolyte for rechargeable batteries, the design, fabrication and implementation of more efficient solar energy infrastructure, the creation of unique processes for converting waste oil to biodiesel, the improvement of hydrogen storage techniques and the advancement of methods for nuclear radiation detection.
