The newly formed Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI) announced that Colorado Law Professor William Boyd and Senior Research Fellow Kevin Doran would be two of its 18 inaugural fellows.RASEI is a joint institution between the University of Colorado at Boulder and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. The institutions goal is the development and commercialization of renewable energy technologies."RASEI continues the successful model that CU has used to partner with other national laboratories in areas such as environmental science, and holds tremendous potential for advancing multi-disciplinary solutions to the world's energy problems,” said Professor Boyd. In addition to being an inaugural fellow, Professor Boyd was active in recruiting the Boulder Campus to partner with NREL to form RASEI. “I am very excited to be a part of it,” Professor Boyd said, “particularly the prospect of developing a platform through RASEI that brings together law, business, science, and technology."
