About the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment

The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University is a multidisciplinary research and education center, whose singular mission is to develop technologies and solutions to secure our energy and environmental future.

To this end, the center supports a vibrant and expanding program of research and teaching in the areas of sustainable energy-technology development, energy efficiency, and environmental protection and remediation. A chief goal of the center is to translate fundamental knowledge into practical solutions that enable sustainable energy production and the protection of the environment and global climate from energy-related anthropogenic change.

The center was founded in July 2008 through an extraordinary $100 million gift from international business leader Gerhard R. Andlinger ’52 and began its operations in the fall of 2010. A stunning complex of research, teaching, and garden spaces to house the center was completed in 2016.

Since it began operations, the center has grown rapidly, with eight faculty hired, high-risk/high-payoff research catalyzed, partnerships with industry forged, and unique educational programs launched.

 

 

The University’s moves to remote instruction last week and current operating policies place us in compliance with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s executive order. University operations continue with functions modified as announced last week and over the weekend. Faculty, staff, and students remaining on campus will be notified of any further changes.
