The Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (CEERE) conducts research and provides technical assistance for a range of clean energy technologies and applications. With support from state and federal partners, we provide services at no cost to industrial, commercial and municipal clients, helping them to identify and implement cost-effective measures that reduce their operating costs, environmental impacts and greenhouse gas emissions.
Based in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, CEERE offers valuable training and research experience for graduate and undergraduate engineering students.
In the past 30 years, we have conducted audits and feasibility studies at more than 800 facilities around the northeast. Our research has informed energy policy and program development, and our graduates have gone on to found energy consulting companies and work for top energy efficiency programs.
