The Center for Energy and Environmental Resources (CEER) serves as the central liaison for energy and environmental research, education, and public service at the University of Texas at Austin. It focuses on efficient and economical use of energy and on ensuring a cleaner environment by developing, in cooperation with industry, processes and technologies that minimize waste and conserve natural resources.


Established in 1974, CEER is located in the Electromechanics and Energy Building at the J. J. Pickle Research Campus, where it occupies over 43,000 square feet of labs & office space. Over its history, CEER has worked with 25 departments and 10 colleges of the university, collaborating on research projects, supporting graduate students, and stimulating education activities related to energy. CEER is an organized research unit that reports through UT's Cockrell School of Engineering.


CEER research projects are funded from a variety of state, federal, and private sources, including the Texas Advanced Research and Technology Programs, National Science Foundation, US Department of Energy, US Environmental Protection Agency, Texas Governor's Energy Office, several national associations, and more than 40 private and public corporations.
