Welcome to the South Carolina Institute for Energy Studies The South Carolina Institute for Energy Studies at Clemson University was founded by the State Legislature in 1982 to help South Carolina and the nation address energy related issues.


Since its inception in 1982, SCIES has repeatedly demonstrated its capability to complete research projects in a wide range of energy related areas.

Much of that capability is seen in SCIES's ability to team with Clemson academic departments and centers, businesses, government agencies, and product developers.

Our core staff is diversified having done research in academia, corporations, small entrepreneurial firms, and government.

SCIES utilizes its Energy Systems Laboratory, as well as Clemson's state-of-the-art facilities to support new energy technology developments.

SCIES focuses on power generation and energy efficiency in all four energy sectors.
