The Pace Center for Civic Engagement is pleased to be piloting its first International Service Trip (IST) in collaboration with the Princeton Environmental Institute, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, and the Keller Center. This trip extends the Pace Center’s Breakout Princeton alternative fall and spring break program internationally.
Lower cost, longer life Electric cars are good for the environment, but two factors — their high price and short battery life — have kept them from catching on. Dan Steingart, an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, is working on a less expensive battery for electric cars.
Claire White was appointed as an assistant professor in the Andlinger Center and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in August 2013. Prior to joining Princeton, she held a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellowship at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where she helped to advance the understanding of sustainable cementitious materials. Recently, she received $150,000 in funding […]
Laura Strickler, Associate Director for Administration at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment since 2011, has been named Executive Director for AdministrativePplanning in the Office of the Executive Vice President at Princeton University.
The Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University seek a distinguished senior scholar in the field of energy and public policy for appointment as a visitor to Princeton University for the academic year 2014-2015. The successful candidate may be either an academic visitor from […]
Increasing the reliability of New Jersey’s emerging solar power network and improving the durability of an environmentally-friendly type of concrete are among the research projects awarded funding this year by the Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership. E-ffiliates brings together industry and university researchers to tackle problems related to energy and the environment. This year’s grants, awarded after […]
Joint Call for Proposals for Innovative Research, Teaching, and Mentorship in Energy and the Environment
The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment (ACEE) and the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) are pleased to announce a joint call for proposals. The goal is to encourage research, teaching, and mentorship that will advance the world’s understanding of important problems in energy and the environment, encourage faculty development, increase Princeton’s institutional capabilities, and […]
The Washington Post’s George F. Will examines Fusion Energy Research at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory
George F. Will considers the benefits of fusion energy research and the political will necessary to allocate funding for it.
The coexistence of two opposing phenomena might be the secret to understanding the enduring mystery in physics of how materials heralded as the future of powering our homes and communities actually work, according to Princeton University-led research. Such insight could help spur the further development of high-efficiency electric-power delivery.
Business leaders and Princeton University scientists gathered for a daylong meeting Nov. 15 to explore solutions to problems of energy and the environment, including adapting to climate change, evolving the electric grid and enabling greener construction.
