The research efforts at CERI are focused on maintaining Colorado’s lead in energy-related research and development.

CERI creates public-private partnerships to conduct research, education and workforce development in both the fossil and renewable energy industries.

CERI has initiated research in extractive energy, energy conversion and distribution, and renewable energy. This research, combined with the tremendous amounts of fossil and renewable energy resources located in the state, plays to the competitive advantage of Colorado in the energy industry. Colorado is probably the only state in the Union with such depth and scope of expertise in both fossil and renewable energy sectors.
