The concept of sustainable energy research, as realized by CEaS, involves a multi-disciplinary effort to address issues of making existing energy technologies more efficient while pursuing emerging alternate energy technologies that are not reliant on fossil fules. We conduct transformative research to promote energy diversity, efficiency, and sustainability while training diverse and talented engineers and scientists to catalyze change in this field. We also engage policymakers, schools, and the public to ensure that the technological advances are robust, widely understood and adopted

Research Thrust Center

The Center involves 27 faculty members from eight interdisciplinary departments at Cal State LA who lead efforts in 5 research thrust areas. Several projects address short-term mitigations of current energy concerns, while some projects address long-term goals of moving away from carbon-based energy dependence.

Application Resource Center

Our programs at California State University, Los Angeles for graduate and undergraduate students in the sciences and engineering fields are offered to students who are interested in research in the broad field of energy and sustainability. Students will work with faculty in various fields, including chemistry, biology, geography, physics, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering, computer science and technology to conduct research on topics related to photovoltaics (solar cells), fuel cells, combustion, biofuels creation and characterization, carbon sequestration, and others. The research spans the range from computational to wet chemistry to field research, all under the direct mentorship of faculty.
