Solar energy represents a vast energy resource, both in the U.S. and globally, that can be harnessed to provide sustainable power and fuels with relatively low environmental impact.
The Solar Energy Laboratory (SEL) at Bucknell University supports the development of solar power and fuel technologies ranging from hardware components to complex systems. The SEL is equipped with a range of testing, measurement, and simulation capabilities including:
The SEL is used primarily for faculty research in the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The SEL also supports courses including Solar Energy Technologies (MECH 420) and Heat Transfer (MECH 312), as well as student projects related to energy technologies and energy efficiency.
