Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation Overview 

Over the coming decades the world must make fundamental transformations in how energy is used and produced. That’s where we come in.

The Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation is focused on addressing several complex challenges:

  • How to use and deliver the energy we already have far more efficiently.
  • How to expand the mix of energy sources in a way that is clean, reliable, affordable and sustainable.
  • How to create innovations in energy technologies, regulations and policies.

Carnegie Mellon University's longstanding expertise in technology, policy, integrated systems and behavioral and social science uniquely suits these challenges. What makes us different is our ability to seamlessly combine these areas for maximum impact.
