INDUSTRY

Many Universities talk about working with industry; UK CAER actually does it. In the past three years, UK CAER researchers have partnered with industry on 185 different projects. That resolve and commitment to Kentucky industry is how the Center lives up to the “applied” portion of our name.

EDUCATION

UK CAER takes pride in offering high school, undergraduate and graduate students authentic, hands-on research experiences at one of the world’s leading energy research and development institutes. UK CAER student researchers get a chance to lead their own experiments under the tutelage of experienced mentors. These experiential opportunities allow students to publish in refereed publications, present posters at international conferences, and, in some cases, earn U.S. patents.

CONFERENCES

The Center’s event planning and technical teams collaborate to host some of science’s largest conferences, including the world’s premier meeting on carbon and coal ash. These meetings provide UK CAER scientists and researchers – as well as colleagues at UK and throughout Kentucky – to interact with, learn from, and share their knowledge with the best scientists in the field.

Outreach

Local Government Energy Retrofit Program

Greg Copley works for the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) but you are more likely to run into him in Hazard or Hopkinsville than you are in Lexington. Energy savings, as he notes, is important to every community across the state, and Copley is determined to make sure that message is delivered — personally — to as many communities as he can.

Education

Welcome to CAER 101.

The CAER 101 project brings scientists and children together in a classroom setting. The scientists create lessons for local 4th and 5th graders, allowing them the opportunity to learn about energy science concepts, hands-on. UK CAER is committed to helping to make math and science fun and relevant to the next generation of Kentuckians.

Pilot-Scale Algae System at Duke Energy’s East Bend Station

CAER researchers are exploring the potential of capturing carbon emissions from a coal-fired power plant to cultivate algae, which can then be processed into value-added products like biodiesel, animal feed, fertilizer, and chemicals.
