Center for Energy, Environment and Economy (CEEE) at OzU was established in 2009 at OzU to focus on Energy, Environment and Economy and to be a depository of engineering and business knowledge in Turkey for both fundamentals and real-world applications. Beyond being only a Research, Development and Implementation Centre, CEEE aims to have significant contributions to the country and the world. Along this line, CEEE aspires to develop solutions and strategies to avoid the negative impacts of climate change to our surroundings. This is only possible with a participative approach by all interested parties, not necessarily only from Turkey, or from the rest of the World. Main research areas of CEEE are:
- Nano-Scale Energy Fundamentals
- Radiative Transfer and Thermal Sciences
- Energy Applications and Efficiency in Buildings
- Multi-disciplinary Industrial Applications
- EEE Solutions for Districts and Cities
- Quantitative Sustainability for Businesses
All these tangible engineering and business research and development studies at the Center are currently funded.
