SRI's Center of Excellence in Energy is your gateway to solutions for important energy and green tech issues. From developing alternative energy sources to using conventional resources in a more sustainable manner, the Center draws on expertise across SRI's R&D divisions. Industry and government agencies worldwide benefit from our scientific expertise and practical know-how, ranging from basic and applied research to developing and testing advanced systems.

SRI develops technologies for the production, storage, distribution, and use of conventional and emerging energy sources, as well as sustainable energy sources. To improve environmental health, SRI develops clean materials, green technology, and processes for renewable energy, energy storage, and safe grid management. Solutions also include systems to study ocean acidification and water purification and desalination.

Clients benefit from our extensive scale-up experience, which brings ideas out of the lab and into the field, quickly and cost-effectively.
