Students in the Energy Science, Technology and Policy (EST&P) program interact with CMU faculty, doctoral students, post-docs, and professional staff who are teaching courses, performing research and affiliated with the many energy-related CMU Institutes, Centers, research groups, outreach programs, and Industry / Government sponsored projects. To cite a few examples:
- CMU Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation
- CMU Heinz College- Energy Systems & Public Policy
- CMU Electricity Industry Center studying technical, economic, and public policy issues related to the electricity industry
- CMU Green Design Institute; a world-leader in life-cycle analysis of energy technologies
- CMU Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research
- CMU / EPP Center for Climate and Energy Decision Making
- CMU / ECE Electric Energy Systems Group
- CMU / EPP / Tepper RenewElec Project, focused on the transition to power generation from variable and intermittent renewable sources
- CMU/EPP Carbon Capture and Sequestration Regulatory Project (CCSReg Project)
- CMU Institute for Green Science
- CMU Center for Nano-enabled Device and Energy Technologies (CNXT)
- CMU / Robotics Institute ChargeCar Electric Vehicle Project
- CMU participating in the mult-university Center for Sustainable Engineering
More comprehensive lists of CMU Energy-related research centers and Energy Partners and activities are available at the CMU Scott Institute for Energy Innovation.
EST&P is also developing and encouraging it's own industry affiliations including:
- EST&P External Advisory Board
- National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and their Regional University Alliance
- The IEEE Power and Energy Society
- The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS)
- and many other regional, national and international affiliations
