Our Mission

World class energy conversion exploration is conducted at the Oregon State University-Cascades Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL), an entity which also serves as an academic training ground for leaders in engineering and research. The areas of interest include advanced internal combustion engines (e.g., low temperature combustion or LTC), unconventional fuels (e.g., natural gas), control systems and sensor development (e.g., infrared optical absorption). 

The ESL team is made up of ethical energy researchers whose reputation for hard work, character and integrity breeds confidence in the research community.
