The Center for Research in Energy and Environment (CREE) serves as the focal point of research, development, and deployment related to energy and environmental technologies and in particular the energy/environment nexus.
Our Living laboratories offer a unique collaborative learning environment to S&T students, faculty researchers, and industry. The six solar homes designed and occupied by S&T students function as a test bed to research and demonstrate real world applications of grid- tied residential systems with solar power generation and energy storage, smart and resilient infrastructure, and human and technology interaction. The future of small neighborhood communities - smart, resilient, secure, and environmentally sustainable- is being built right here at Missouri S&T Solar Villages Living Laboratories.
Available equipment for routine use includes centrifuges, deep freezer, freeze dry system, semi-micro balance and analytical balances, lab ovens, autoclave, walk-in temperature & light control chambers, large greenhouse, high quality MilliQ water systems, portable GCs, and many more items.
