Beyond the engineering and technological challenges, research from Jacob Schwartz, Wilson Ricks, Jesse Jenkins, and Egemen Kolemen finds that economics will play a key role in shaping fusion energy's future in the U.S.
Two independent studies, one led by Mark Zondlo and the other by Z. Jason Ren, have demonstrated that existing guidelines severely underestimate actual methane emissions from wastewater treatment plants.
The gel uses sunlight to soak up clean water while leaving behind contaminants, producing over a gallon of water in as little as ten minutes.
A core faculty member of the Center, Rand has been recognized for outstanding teaching nine times by the Dean of the School of Engineering, and has also served as associate director for external partnerships at the Andlinger Center, overseeing E-ffiliates.
The fund will support fundamental and applied energy solutions research and foster collaboration with corporate partners.
An emerging class of solar energy technology, made with perovskite semiconductors, has passed the long-sought milestone of a 30-year lifetime.
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.
