Research Projects

Hybrid vehicle project

There are many problems facing the environment and our nation’s security today. The Lugar Center seeks solutions to these problems through education, research and development. We focus on renewable energy in the following areas: fuel cell and battery technology, electric and hybrid vehicles, energy efficiency education, renewable hydrogen, biofuels, solar energy, clean combustion and propulsion, waste to energy, smart grid technology and energy policy.

The LCRE continues to focus on existing research and educational programs in traditional niche areas, while expanding to include new areas of emphasis and growth, including Waste-to-Energy, our Industrial Assessment Center, intellectual property commercialization, and more.
