Support RAEL

Seed funds and lab­o­ra­tory space for the Renew­able and Appro­pri­ate Energy Lab­o­ra­tory have been pro­vided by the Energy and Resources Group, the Depart­ment of Nuclear Engi­neer­ing, and the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia.

These resources have been used to ren­o­vate the lab­o­ra­tory space and pro­vide and pur­chase basic lab­o­ra­tory infra­struc­ture and equipment.

The Renew­able and Appro­pri­ate Energy Lab­o­ra­tory is a unique facil­ity ded­i­cated to use-​​inspired fun­da­men­tal research, the appli­ca­tion of diverse meth­ods to pro­mot­ing sus­tain­able social, envi­ron­men­tal, and eco­nomic progress. The RAEL exists as a means to build bridges of under­stand­ing and true col­lab­o­ra­tion between aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers, the ‘North’ and the ‘South’ and to demon­strate that new paths in devel­op­ment are possible.

The RAEL does not fit neatly into the stan­dard cat­e­gories under­stood by aca­d­e­mic or prac­ti­tioner groups, and is thus par­tic­u­larly in need of sup­port by indi­vid­u­als and groups will­ing to look beyond the sta­tus quo. We need and actively seek your sup­port for this facil­ity. In par­tic­u­lar, we hope to develop an endow­ment for the lab­o­ra­tory. Please con­tact us should you be inter­ested to assist the group.

Con­tri­bu­tions are tax-​​deductible and can be writ­ten to the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia and sent to Pro­fes­sor Daniel M. Kam­men in the Energy and Resources Group. Please con­tact D. M. Kam­men for addi­tional information.
