Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER)

The Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER) at James Madison University builds on JMU's recognized leadership in the Commonwealth of Virginia for developing and implementing innovative alternative energy solutions and applied environmental research programs. In addition to working with faculty, staff, and students at JMU, the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER), housed within the Office of Research and Scholarship, facilitates strategic alliances with external partners to advance the university's research and service projects. 

Initiatives within IEER include the Virginia Center for Wind Energy, Virginia Clean Cities (VCC), and the Office of Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability (OESS). JMU is also home to the Alternative Fuels Vehicle Lab, which provides opportunities for students to convert and adapt vehicles to operate on alternative and renewable fuels.
