Carnegie Mellon University


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.


The Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University is focused on developing and demonstrating the technologies, systems and policies needed to accelerate the transition toward a more sustainable future.
