The Energy Transition Lab will work in partnership with leaders in government, business and non-profit organizations to advance the needed energy transition. It will focus on collaborative law and policy projects that have the capacity for on-the-ground impact. These projects will address core substantive areas of energy transition, working to advance greater energy efficiency, use of cleaner and more renewable sources, evolution and integration of the transportation and electricity systems, and approaches that maximize energy and environmental justice. In pursuing this mission, the lab will focus on developing new policy pathways, institutional structures and regulatory solutions. It will foster dialogue and significant policy changes. The Energy Transition Lab aims to become the “go-to place” for experts and leaders beyond the University to work together with University faculty, students and staff toward solutions to our society’s most vexing energy challenges.
The initiative will maximize impact through:
- collaborative, concrete projects with business, public policy and thought leaders
- annual conferences and other public engagement events
- creative new media efforts.
