Energy and environmental experts at a recent Princeton University gathering grappled with fundamental questions about how to build a stronger infrastructure and proposed solutions for providing and using energy and water more efficiently.
Scientists from Princeton, Stanford and Ohio State universities, as well as the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, have identified the specific attributes of abandoned wells that leak significant amounts of methane, which could help state governments prioritize which wells to repair.
When it comes to global warming, most people worry about power plants. Claire White thinks about another kind of plant — those that make cement. "Cement production and cement powder are a major component of greenhouse gas emissions," said White, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University. "It accounts for between 5 and 8 percent of human-made carbon dioxide." Along with
Margaret Fels, a long-time researcher and teacher at Princeton University and an early leader in defining effective ways to evaluate energy efficiency in buildings and manufacturing, died Nov. 12. She was 70.
We all depend upon lithium-ion batteries every day to power our cellphones and laptops. Craig Arnold is working to make those batteries last longer and provide more energy.
In this wide-ranging keynote speech at Princeton's She Roars conference, Environmental Protection Agency chief Lisa Jackson talks about the historic importance of women's leadership in efforts to safeguard the health of the planet.
Emily Carter, founding director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton, talks about why she decided to devote the rest of her career to energy research. Laying out her strategic vision for the Andlinger Center, Carter says that Princeton's track record for interdisciplinary work puts it in a unique position to solve the complex energy problems that society faces.
Emily Carter, a Princeton professor of engineering and applied mathematics, and eminent physical chemist, has been appointed the founding director of the University's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.
A Pakistani garbage dump seems like an unlikely place to find a solution to extreme poverty. But then again, the group of students from Princeton and Rutgers universities who plan to convert garbage into hope is an unlikely team.
