Five-year National Science Foundation award to study solar energy and its effects on Nevada. We are leading research on solar energy generation and its impacts on water resources and the environment. The Nexus project brings together a diverse and disciplined group of scientists, engineers, educators, and students working together to push the frontiers of science and education.
The Solar Energy Nexus infrastructure is designed to build collaboration among Nevada’s premier researchers and solar energy stakeholders to generate solar energy with minimal water use and environmental impact. We are the workforce driving innovation in Nevada’s clean energy economy.
