Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation - Carnegie Mellon University

Over the coming decades the world must make fundamental transformations in how energy is used and produced. That’s where we come in.

The Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University is focused on:

  • Using and delivering the energy we already have far more efficiently
  • Expanding the mix of energy sources in a way that is clean, reliable, affordable and sustainable
  • Creating innovations in energy technologies, regulations and policies

CMU is uniquely suited for these challenges with our many research centers and longstanding faculty expertise in technology, policy, integrated systems and behavioral science.

What makes us different is our ability to seamlessly combine these areas for maximum impact. Learn more about the institute »'
