Two research teams, 19 researchers, set ambitious agendas for fuels and transportation
Providing clean energy to all while mitigating the impact on the environment is a huge task that requires deep, creative collaboration between top scientific, engineering, and policy experts working in multiple disciplines. To lay the groundwork to help solve this monumental challenge, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University has announced the funding of two ambitious multi-investigator projects, totaling $600,000 and involving researchers from seven departments on campus.
