Innovation for Energy
To lead the world’s transition to a sustainable energy future, substantial innovation is required – from technology to regulation and policy. And for decades, CMU’s innovative work has been known for its contributions to the foundations of industry.
Today, we are working to revolutionize the energy sector as it transitions from fossil fuels to clean energy sources. In addition to creating new materials and processes, the university’s research is resulting in new companies with the help of CMU’s first-of-its-kind spin-off model for academia – Greenlighting Startups. Two recent examples in the energy sector are Aquion Energy and Plextronics.
