The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University is a multidisciplinary research and education center, whose singular mission is to develop technologies and solutions to better our energy and environmental future.
"Saving our environment will not hinge on a singular grand solution, but a constellation of technologies and policies working together."

Theodora D. ’78 and William H. Walton III ’74 Professor in Engineering
Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering
From the next generation of solar photovoltaics to fuels generated using artificial photosynthesis, the researchers at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment are working on many promising technologies and solutions that will pave the way for a world less reliant on fossil fuels.
Through courses, certificate programs, and lectures, students are able to learn about sustainable energy technologies, renewable energy sources, and their complex, intertwining connections to policies, economics, and human behavior. And there are many opportunities for hands-on learning through field work and classes where students can fabricate and investigate materials and devices.
To foster transformational changes in energy and the environment, the world needs academic and industry experts working together on innovative research that become practical, market-ready solutions. Our corporate affiliates program, the Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership, answers this call.
To educate beyond Princeton Universtiy, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment offers the Energy Technology Distillates. Designed to provide succinct yet substantive information to policymakers, corporate leaders, educators, students, and other interested citizens, these publications cover emerging topics in energy and the environment that combine technological, economic, and policy considerations.
The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment has been a hub for many exciting, thought-provoking lectures and events. Leaders from academia, government, industry, and non-governmental organizations have presented talks on architecture, battery storage, nuclear fusion, biofuels, sustainable chemistry, and other topics. Students and postdoctoral research associates have also presented their projects at the center's well-attended events.

Completed in 2016, our stunning new building is a 129,000 square foot complex of labs, instructional spaces, meetings areas, lecture spaces, offices, gardens, and courtyards. It houses state-of-the-art cleanrooms and an imaging and analysis center, both equipped with the latest in tools to investigate and fabricate advanced materials and devices to solve the world’s pressing energy and environmental needs.
