Addressing the ever-increasing worldwide demand for energy, while minimizing impact on the environment, is the primary key to a sustainable future. The Andlinger Center brings together researchers and educators in the interdisciplinary fields of engineering, architecture, the social and natural sciences, and public policy to address this fundamental challenge of the 21st century. It draws upon several fields of study including energy efficiency, renewable energy, pollutant detection and remediation, energy storage, electricity transmission, green manufacturing, carbon capture and storage, social science of energy and the environment.

The center consists of faculty drawn from diverse disciplines: architecture, astrophysical sciences, atmospheric and oceanic sciences, chemical and biological engineering, chemistry, civil and environmental engineering, computer science, ecology and evolutionary biology, economics, electrical engineering, geosciences, mechanical and aerospace engineering, Near Eastern studies, environmental studies, psychology, operations research and financial engineering, physics, and policy.

An important goal of the center is to provide Princeton undergraduates with the opportunity to explore issues related to energy and the environment in a multi-dimensional fashion. These dimensions include generation and deployment of energy systems, quantitative analysis of their impact on economic growth and society, and evaluation of their impact on climate change and the environment. The center aims to produce future leaders who will place us on a sustainable trajectory with their work on science, engineering, architecture, economics, public policy, and environmental issues related to energy systems.

The center offers a certificate program in technology and society, in conjunction with the Keller Center. This program has two tracks: energy and information technology. It is aimed at humanities and social science concentrators. The center also relies on the Program in Sustainable Energy to meet the needs of science and engineering concentrators. Further information is available at the center's website.
