Established in 2020, the main drive behind the center of excellence, CERE, is to promote research and development projects in clean energy technology. The center is aiming to be a hub for people interested in participating in energy research projects and activities.

The transfer of knowledge and the creation of research and development culture among both undergraduate and graduate students is a key goal of the center.

CERE will act as bridge between researchers, local businesses, and relevant stake holders. This will ensure a problem-oriented energy research in Gaza strip-Palestine.
