The SWTDI is a non-profit, university-based organization that provides applied research and development services for private and public sector clients. SWTDI was established in 1977 as the New Mexico Solar Energy Institute, and has active research programs in energy and related systems.

Located on the campus of New Mexico State University (NMSU), SWTDI’s goal is to promote deployment and use of reliable renewable energy technologies.

SWTDI provides training and contract engineering services for systems analysis, hardware development and evaluation, feasibility studies, computer modeling, and informational kiosks. SWTDI performs contract engineering for a wide variety of private and public sector clients, including research organizations, utility companies, and local, state, and federal government agencies. Ever changing and developing as needs for research and outreach change, in 2011 SWTDI became part of the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
