Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has launched the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation, a new research and education initiative focused on improving energy efficiency and developing new, clean, affordable and sustainable energy sources.

Through its research and education programs, the institute aims to develop new innovative energy technologies and create an improved understanding of how to promote their wide adoption through better regulation and public policy.

The institute will support teams of CMU engineers, scientists, economists, architects, policy specialists and others to tackle a range of issues, including developing more efficient energy solutions that reduce carbon emissions; smart grid technology to enable the use of large amounts of variable wind and solar power; and new advanced materials and processes to produce and store energy, increase efficiency and reduce waste.
