MISSION

Reducing energy related carbon emissions is critical to our efforts to address the climate crisis we are facing. It requires the identification of reliable, cost-efficient energy that can rapidly and equitably scale to our growing needs. Energy Futures Research Engine was launched to identify solutions by facilitating world-changing technologies, fostering interdisciplinary research that will shape the future of energy, and building relationships with diverse stakeholders and the community. The Energy Futures Research Engine is focused on stimulating development of next generation energy infrastructure and breakthrough technologies to ensure affordable energy with minimal environmental impact.

VALUES

Affordable and Equitable -Develop energy solutions that are cost effective, affordable, and ensure no segment of the population is disproportionately burdened by energy solutions we move towards in the future.
Economic Security - Development of energy resources that contributes to the immediate and long-term economic security, including a skilled workforce and curriculum development.
Quality of Life - Identification of energy solutions that minimize environmental impacts while contributing to community wellbeing, especially those communities most impacted by climate change and energy disruption.
