The mission of the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center is to enhance public awareness of emerging renewable energy resources through a focus on applied research and workforce training in the renewable/sustainable and smart grid technologies.

This mission is achieved through the following objectives:

  • Promote applied research in Renewable/Sustainable and Smart Grid Technologies
  • Create Long Island's first Smart Energy Campus in conjunction with PSEGLI, with a focus on smart grid technology, building automation and integration of renewable energy resources
  • Transform the Solar Energy Center into Long Island's Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center (RESC) with focus on solar, small scale wind, geothermal, green data centers, alternative fuel vehicles and smart grids
  • Expand the Solar Energy Center to become the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center with live demonstration models emulating customer-owned equipment on renewable energy resources (e.g., wind, solar, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles), with smart grid technology and real time displays
  • Use the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center to develop certificate–level training programs in renewable energy resources for green technology entrepreneurs as well as the industry workforce
  • Develop a “STEM” K-12 outreach program with a goal of integration of energy related projects and curriculum modules into K-12 curriculum.
