ribution, and storage projects throughout Southern California.

"We're pleased that AQMD recognized the benefits of this project," said Reza Abbaschian, dean of the Bourns College of Engineering. "This is yet another example of our commitment to smart-grid energy solutions that integrate solar energy generation, battery storage, and distribution that are at the core of the mission of CE-CERT and our new Winston Chung Global Energy Center."

The Winston Chung Global Energy Center is a new venture funded by Chinese inventor, entrepreneur and Fellow of the College Winston Chung. Chung's company, Winston Global Energy, will donate 2-megawatts of rare earth lithium-ion batteries for the project.

Bourns, Inc., which is adjacent CE-CERT, will provide the property for the solar installation, and SolarMax, a partner with the college in a number of research projects, will provide the solar panels.

Balqon, a manufacturer of heavy duty electric vehicles, will assist in the conversion of the trolley and in the installation of the battery storage, charging and distribution system. A similar 1.1-megawatt system is currently being tested by Balqon and CE-CERT researchers in advance of its being used to help power Winston Chung Hall on the UCR campus.

The AQMD project is a unique collaboration between the CE-CERT, its industry partners and the City of Riverside, Riverside Public Utilities and Riverside Transit Agency.

"This project will allow us to help the City of Riverside make a huge leap toward in realizing its Green Action Plan," Abbaschian said. "Our research capabilities, combined with the expertise and resources of our industry and municipal agency partners, promises to provide clean, renewable energy solutions in the years ahead."
