Energy is entwined in all aspects of our lives, whether at home or work, in the car or on foot, and in the wind, sun, water and plants around us. Since 2015, the Plugged Into Energy Research (PIER) lecture series has highlighted cutting-edge research and outreach projects and engages industry experts to explore how a variety of energy-related topics may affect our daily lives in the future. The goal of the PIER lecture series is to increase literacy around energy topics of concern in Rhode Island. Please join us for our annual lectures held each fall at URI.

Next PIER Lecture Series coming Fall 2024
