Message from the Director
Last month, a remarkable group of industry, government, and academic leaders gathered to examine new approaches to valuing distributed energy. The event
, which was hosted by the Princeton Energy and Environment Corporate Affiliates Program
, provided an open forum for the group to discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by the U.S. electric utility industry.
As the academic year comes to an end, we’re preparing for a new group of undergraduate summer interns. Students will perform laboratory research under the guidance of a faculty advisor, exploring diverse topics in energy and related environmental issues. I am also very pleased to announce another outstanding graduate student will be supported as our second Maeder Graduate Fellow.
Each of these activities, and others you will read about below, speaks to our efforts to encourage collaboration and discourse among our faculty, students, and industry leaders. These connections will enable us to address the complexities of energy technologies and their effects on the environment.
