At CoRE, our team members and partners are working together to build a regenerative economy. While our initial focus will be on solar panel manufacturing and the Buffalo-Niagara region — advancing new solutions for clean technology that are inclusive of our community's strengths — we plan to create replicable models that can be tailored for other industrial communities.
Given how important the solar industry is to our society, ecology and economy, the JPB Foundation has funded a multi-year partnership across the University at Buffalo, Clean Production Action and Niagara Share. CoRE — the Collaboratory for a Regenerative Economy — will work with solar industry leaders and industrial communities on a state of the art materials discovery and civic entrepreneurial program. This includes new education and training programs on science and technology for people who want to leverage the benefits of the solar industry for employment and economic development.
