N.J. provides fertile ground for Princeton University researchers. The state’s four geological regions and its mix of urban, rural and suburban communities allow Princeton faculty, staff and students to develop environmental and climate solutions on their home turf that address an array of global concerns.
Currently, there is no cost-effective process to revive the billions of cellphone and laptop batteries that are discarded. Now Princeton researchers have developed an inexpensive, sustainable way to make new batteries from used ones and have spun off a company to scale up the innovation.
How many electric vehicles should be on the road in each state, and across the country, in 2030, 2040 and 2050 to meet climate goals? How much land will be needed for solar or wind farms? How large will the energy-sector workforce need to be?
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.
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.
