On April 18, the University of California, Riverside (UCR) hosted Christy L. Jackiewicz, Chief of the Minority Educational Institution Division at the DOE Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, and Nabih Haddad, STEM Research and Development Lead. This visit was part of the preparations for the upcoming "Energy to the People" event in collaboration with the Department of Energy (DOE).

During their visit, Jackiewicz and Haddad explored UCR's CE-CERT and gained insights into the center's internship programs and DOE-supported projects. They had the opportunity to tour the labs where various exciting projects are underway, including the EcoCAR EV Challenge, which involves students in designing and building low-emission vehicles, and the Atmospheric Processes Laboratory, which focuses on understanding how atmospheric processes impact climate and air quality.

In addition, the guests were introduced to a new three-year project funded by the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. This project's goal is to construct and test a CELF pilot demonstration unit at CE-CERT, contributing to the development of innovative and sustainable energy solutions.

CECERT was delighted to welcome Christy and Nabih to the campus and to show them the incredible work being done in partnership with the DOE.
