Schatz Energy Research Center


About Us At the Schatz Energy Research Center (SERC) on California's North Coast, we are working to establish clean and renewable energy technologies in our society. We design and build prototype proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and integrate them into complete power systems. We also provide energy education for K-12,undergraduate, and graduate students; business and service groups; and the general public, and we design and build PEM fuel cells for educational demonstrations and hands-on laboratory activities. As scientists and engineers, we are dedicated to our research. As teachers, we are passionate about educating people of all ages about the exciting potential of the hydrogen economy. Affiliated with Humboldt StatE University's Environmental Resources Engineering program, SERC provides a rare opportunity For undergraduate and graduate engineering students to acquire hands-on experience with cutting-edge energy technologies.
