From lab to market, SyracuseCoE headquarters is a test bed for environmental and energy technologies and building innovations with laboratory and office space for research and business collaborations on products and services. Research, demonstration, and commercialization projects developed at SyracuseCoE in our core focus areas of clean and renewable energy, indoor air quality, and water resources strengthen Central Upstate New York’s reputation as a leader in the green and clean technology industry.
Many of the assets researchers and technologists use and study are part of the building’s design. For instance:
The Willis H. Carrier Total Indoor Environmental Quality Lab, a one-of-a-kind research facility designed to conduct experiments on the human response to indoor environments.
The Urban Ecosystem Observatory tower, which measures outdoor air quality to help research into air pollution and the impact of buildings on urban ecosystems.
The Biofuels R&D Laboratory in the Lab Wing, which will house the R&D of new fuels and by-products from renewable biological sources.
The Living Roof on the Lab Wing will serve as a research site for plants and materials that can be used for stormwater management in urban settings.
In addition to our headquarters, SyracuseCoE research projects utilize exceptional laboratories and field study sites available through our academic partner institutions. From the building envelope systems test lab at Syracuse University and watershed science field study site to the shrub willow field study site at SUNY ESF and field study of indoor air quality in residences conducted by SUNY Upstate Medical University. There are multiple ways in which our many researchers conduct studies, and the potential projects keep growing.
Research & Technology Forums
These sessions focus on creating actionable events from which the attendees can benefit. Each session includes a cross section of people from a variety of groups including relevant industries, academia, and medicine.
These forums provide a great opportunity for networking, brainstorming, and learning about cutting edge environmental and energy systems technologies , and research and demonstration projects taking place in New York's Creative Core.
More details about the forums, as well as a calendar of events, can be found at on the Research & Technology Forums home page.
