Abstract

UNLV is committed to helping the community and state capitalize on the abundant solar resources of Southern Nevada through both research and education programs. The university is poised to lead an initiative that will help put Southern Nevada on the map as a resource for solar energy development and innovation with its proposed Solar Solutions Center. The new Solar Solutions Center will establish UNLV as a national center of excellence (a one-stop-shop) for solar energy deployment and will prepare future leaders who will support a renewable energy economy. The center is designed to employ research, policy analysis, and business community outreach to create solar energy industry jobs, improve technology, develop pro-solar policies, and coordinate financial and intellectual resources.
