Meeting the global demand for energy in a sustainable manner, i.e.  without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, poses one of the biggest challenges of our time.


Basic scientific research is essential for dramatic improvements that are our only hope for making this possible. Beyond energy, humanity is at a nexus of demands for food, water, etc. all impinging on the quality of our environment.


This is what motivates SAERI scientists to focus on providing the fundamental scientific basis that will lead to the technological developments transforming the path towards sustainability and alternative energy sources.
