About the Institute for Sustainable Energy: The Boston University Institute for Sustainable Energy is a university-wide center dedicated to facilitating the transition to a sustainable, climate-safe global energy system. Through interdisciplinary research, policy analysis, and collaborative engagement, our mission is to ensure that the energy systems of the world provide abundant, sustainable, and universally accessible energy services to both emerging and advanced economies. ISE is a new generation of think and do tanks, whose goal is to harness world-class research and education resources to contribute to important global economic, social, and technological challenges. This enormous challenge will require new technologies and energy processes, new forms of financing and financial institutions, new policy approaches and new forms of public governance, and new companies, industries, and markets. Our work spans all of the disciplines, departments, and colleges at BU and involves many partnerships with other researchers, policymakers, and industry. We collaborate with other energy research centers around the world and with many related programs at BU, including sustainability@bu, the Initiative on Cities, and the Pardee Center.
