CMU's Latest Energy Projects
The need for new technical and policy-based solutions to address the world’s energy challenges is unwavering. By 2050, the projected annual global energy demand will be nearly twice that experienced now (BP Energy Outlook, 2017), and these needs will grow much faster in regions with developing economies. To meet these demands, we will be altering the environment at an alarming pace—often by any means necessary. It is critical to develop and implement new energy technology solutions and there must be policies that encourage these new solutions and markets that grow around them.
At Carnegie Mellon University, faculty, students and researchers who work in energy-related fields take these challenges to heart. Learn about our latest energy projects below.
