Development, education, and equitable implementation of sustainable energy technologies are at the core of the Ralph O’Connor Sustainable Energy Institute’s (ROSEI’s) mission. In the Fall of 2021 ROSEI defined and provided initial funding for five initiatives to further these goals:
- Negative Carbon Carbon (NC2),
- Light-Integrated Technology for Energy Storage (LITES),
- Zero-Carbon Power Systems, Markets, and Policy (Z-CAP),
- Wind Farm Flow Database (WFdb), and
- Sustainable Energy Education (SEE)
Each initiative is briefly explained in the following. Parties interested in learning more specifics may contact ROSEI or the initiative leaders directly. For Hopkins faculty interested in funding related to these initiatives ROSEI is participating in the JHU Discovery and Catalyst seed research programs and offering an additional $50,000 on top of the conventional awards for impactful work aligned with the ROSEI focus areas, and specifically these initiatives.
