OUR BIG AMBITION is to help the world pivot from a fossil-fueled energy system with uncompensated external costs to one that optimizes energy productivity through smart demand, internalized impacts, and sustainable supply.



We cultivate energy policy innovation and promote its application—creating opportunities for students, researchers, and practitioners to debate viewpoints, explore options, and develop agendas for decision and action.


Our center is home to a group of engaged people who support this mission with mind and muscle. Meet the staff, senior fellows, visiting scholars, and advisory board members working to improve energy policy.

Carnot Prize

In memory of French scientist Sadi Carnot, the Carnot Prize is our annual recognition of distinguished contributions to energy policy through scholarship or practice.
