A chief goal of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment is to translate fundamental knowledge into practical solutions that enable sustainable energy production and the protection of the environment and global climate from energy-related anthropogenic change.
"Saving our environment will not hinge on a singular grand solution, but a constellation of technologies and policies working together."

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 our Highlight Seminar lecture series, students have the opportunity to learn about sustainable energy technologies, renewable energy sources, and their complex, intertwining connections to policies, economics, and human behavior.
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.
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. And it is capped with state-of-the-art cleanrooms and an imaging and analysis center, both housing the latest in equipment to investigate and fabricate advanced materials and devices to solve the world’s pressing energy and environmental issues.
