Princeton University is part of a partnership of eight universities that has received a six-year, $20 million federal grant to pursue broad approaches to improving the efficiency of production and use of fossil fuels, while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and harm to the environment.
Two members of the engineering faculty, Emily Carter and Michael Celia, have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest professional honors for U.S. engineers.
In the future, cars could run on fuel that started as a tree branch — part of a virtuous cycle that begins in the woods and ends with cleaner air and decreasing levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
Cyanide might not seem like the obvious solution to cleaning up water, but as Christina Chang discovered in her junior year at Princeton, the chemical could have significant impact on both pollution cleanup and water purification.
Scientists, economists, and policy-makers should collaborate in creating sound energy and environmental policies in the face of increasingly complex technological systems, said Franklin Orr, under secretary for science and energy at the U.S. Department of Energy, in a talk to researchers, students and corporate leaders at Princeton University on Nov. 20.
After over three years of construction, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment is about to open its doors, ushering in a new phase for the center's goal to develop solutions to ensure our energy and environmental future.

Solar electricity installations and other distributed sources of electric power present increasingly pressing questions for public utilities, regulators and consumers, according to organizers of a recent roundtable meeting co-sponsored by Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership.
Increasing the reliability of New Jersey's emerging solar power network and improving the durability of an environmentally-friendly type of concrete are among the research projects awarded funding this year by the Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership.
Michael Schwartz, the Gerhard Andlinger Visiting Professor in Energy and the Environment, stepped to the front of the class with a question. Could market forces drive a sustained movement away from fossil fuels?
Business leaders and Princeton University scientists gathered for a daylong meeting November 15 to explore solutions to problems of energy and the environment, including adapting to climate change, evolving the electric grid and enabling greener construction.
The U.S. electric utility industry faces a critical juncture as new technology and declining prices allow a more "distributed" system of small-scale generators, renewable energy installations and energy efficiency strategies, according to a group of high-level energy industry executives and regulators who met at Princeton University.
Turning municipal solid waste into fuel and reducing greenhouse gases emitted in making concrete are the first two innovations funded by the recently established Princeton Energy and Environment Corporate Affiliates Program.
The market for alternative energy technologies shows many areas of promise but also is beset by major uncertainties over regulation and tax policy, a leading energy analyst told an audience of academic researchers and corporate leaders at Princeton University Tuesday, Nov. 13.
