Established at Bronx Community College in 2003, the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) uses experiential education to build an urban community on the tenets of renewable energy, informed political engagement and the emerging green economy. Full-time faculty, adjunct professors, staff and students are dedicated to developing novel curriculum for grid-tied and off-grid solar/photovoltaics and green organic chemistry. The CSE has trained over 2000 inner-city students and municipal employees from the NYC Department of Buildings, fire departments, private architecture and engineering firms. The CSE engages high school and college students in biodiesel and cellulosic biofuel research projects and hosts an annual Sustainable Energy and Design Conference for stakeholders across academic, industrial and governmental offices. Visiting scholars from the City University of New York, U.S. and foreign universities are hosted in our state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms.
