Our initiatives are designed to address critical needs in key topical areas around energy.
Our mission is to elevate women in the energy sector. The initiative offers educational programming and professional development and addresses barriers to entry and success. We work with industry to recruit, retain, and promote women into decision-making roles.
CDI is a large-scale market transformation, grant-seeding, and commercialization initiative for carbontech science and technology. CDI aims to position New York State as a global carbontech hub by supporting research and development, facilitating technology transfer, and commercializing innovation. By leveraging the deep bench of technical expertise at Columbia University and the entrepreneurial dynamism of New York State, CDI will promote the decarbonization solutions required to address the climate crisis and catalyze economic development.
Our Lab works with global communities to improve opportunities for sustainable energy inclusion, innovation, and growth while supporting progress toward the overall goal of a just energy transition to low-carbon energy.
Nuclear energy is a dispatchable low-carbon option that can be expanded quickly to accomplish decarbonization. The initiative will focus on five major thrusts to address the challenges facing nuclear energy: Communications and education, NRC regulation, reactors, fuel cycle, and international engagement.
The Energy Systems Modeling and Analtyics (EMSA) Platform is building data-driven investment decision and engineering analytics tools. These tools provide the evidence base to cut the ambition-reality gap from policy pledges toward an energy transition to actual robust engineering and investment-grade decision analytics.
