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 fosters a vibrant atmosphere where deep collaboration, engagement, passion, and curiosity among faculty, researchers, students, and staff are highly valued. The Andlinger Center is continuously looking for talented and dedicated individuals who want to join our team and help fulfill the center’s mission: to provide clean energy for a rapidly growing world population while preserving our natural resources.
