Organization profile


The Institutes of Energy and the Environment (IEE) works to build teams of researchers from different disciplines to see how new partnerships and new ways of thinking can solve some of the world’s most difficult energy and environmental challenges. We foster and facilitate interdisciplinary scholarship in collaboration with more than 500 extraordinary faculty, staff, and students as we advance the energy and environmental research missions of the University.

Penn State is a global research leader in many areas of profound importance to society. Our goal is to make real-world impacts and help translate data into knowledge and technical innovations. We believe that Penn State is uniquely equipped to address five major research themes, all requiring interdisciplinary problem solving and solution innovation.
