The Council of Energy Research and Education Leaders (CEREL) is a multidisciplinary membership organization made up of heads of academic energy research and education centers, institutes, and programs. It provides the means for leaders in energy research, education, and communication to collaboratively use knowledge about energy to improve education, decision-making, and, more generally, the well-being of society.

Rationale

Energy is the common link between the living and non-living realms of the universe, and thus it is an integrator across all fields in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, education, and research.  Virtually every discipline investigates some aspect of energy, including history, anthropology, public policy, international relations, human and ecosystem health, economics, technology, physics, geology, ecology, business management, environmental science, and engineering.  The concept of energy also is applicable at all levels of formal education and lifelong learning, and it includes many topics and tools that motivate successful learning.  Consumers are increasingly confronted with decisions about the cost and availability of different forms of household energy, while diverse groups in civil society organize around political, social, and environmental ramifications of the energy system.

Despite its overarching importance, there is no coherent field of energy studies; the scientific, engineering, economic, and sociological communities share no common energy journals, conferences, or identity.  There is a wealth of information about energy, but it is spread across many books, journals, websites, disciplines, ideologies, and user communities.

CEREL provides the means for leaders in energy research, education, and communication to collaboratively use knowledge about energy to improve education, decision-making, and, more generally, the well-being of society.

Composition

CEREL includes the full range of institutions, programs, people and perspectives that comprise the energy field.  In the academic arena this includes public and private institutions of every size and academic orientation, including education, research, and communication issues.

Membership is open to leaders of all college and university-based energy centers and programs as well as related research and education units that pay the membership fee. Institutions may have multiple representatives.

Role of NCSE

NCSE serves as the Secretariat for the Council. The group selects its own leadership and determines its own policies and activities. NCSE plays the roles of facilitator and service provider, but not decisionmaker, for the group. NCSE has a similar function with the Council of Environmental Deans and Directors (CEDD), which NCSE helped form in 2001.

Please contact David Blockstein at NCSE with any questions or for additional information:  david@NCSEonline.org or 202-207-0004.

Obama Administration Sets Goal of One Million More STEM Graduates

January 3, 2013

The nation needs one million addition graduates with an undergraduate degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM), according to a new goal set by the Obama Administration. The additional graduates will be produced over the next decade. The need for additional STEM-skilled workers was first proposed earlier this year by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.
