The Center for Advanced Energy Systems (CAES) creates, supports, and facilitates growth of new technologies and practices for energy systems that drive industry in our nation. CAES activities include conducting research and sharing knowledge through education and technology transfer, and helping to shape current and future energy policies.
CAES participates in the U.S. Department of Energy's Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC) program. This program comprises teams of university researchers and students that perform no-cost energy, productivity, and waste assessments for small- and medium-sized manufacturers nationwide, and identify cost-saving opportunities for the business owner, including guidance on appropriate government rebates and incentives.
Faculty researchers and students engaged in Rutgers CAES come from myriad engineering disciplines, including industrial, mechanical, electrical, chemical, and environmental engineering.
