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.

At the Scott Institute for Energy Innovation,

We address the world’s most pressing energy challenges by enabling collaborative research, strategic partnerships, policy outreach, entrepreneurship and education.

We support impactful work that strives to optimize resources and reduce environmental consequences associated with energy production and use. We understand that energy and social equity issues are deeply interconnected, and society can benefit with improved energy access.

We seek to encourage the development of breakthrough technologies that will accelerate the transition to a sustainable, low-carbon energy future.
