Global Renewable Energy Leadership Fellows
Global Renewable Energy Leadership Fellows design and carry out forward-thinking research on sustainable energy systems in partnership with other academic, industrial or nongovernmental partners—particularly in other parts of the world. Global Renewable Energy Leadership Fellows typically have a doctoral degree or equivalent in engineering, earth and environmental sciences; energy-related fields of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics; economics; or environmental architecture and design.
Funding for the GRELF project has been provided by the Initiative for Renewable Energy and the Environment (IREE).
