Central to building research capacity in renewable energy and energy efficiency (RE/EE) is adding new instrumentation and faculty members to each of the research platforms. Most of the first year of the Iowa RII project was occupied with purchasing equipment and recruiting new faculty. The instrumentation purchased to date expands the capabilities of existing facilities in the Iowa jurisdiction including several pilot‐scale energy conversion systems, bench‐top laboratories, and field laboratories.
