Energy-Environmental Systems Research

The complex interaction among society, energy and the environment has dramatically changed over the past few decades. Recognizing this, the Energy and Environment group has come together as a community of people, seeking to collectively lay intellectual foundations for future change. We include practitioners and scholars who were actively engaged during past transitions together with a new generation of scholars.

Among our aims, we look to elucidate issues at the intersection of technology and society with a focus on solutions grounded in policy and practice. Our research seeks to advance problem-solving in ways which surmount the limitations of traditional disciplines. In our teaching and scholarship, we value learning that is informed by both theory and application.

Drawing from a diversity of experience working with industry, government, laboratories, and community-based initiatives, we look to equip the next generation of decision-makers and analysts with foundational knowledge and relevant experience to shape current and emergent energy-environmental pathways.
