Resourcing the Future
More than ever, the world needs clearly articulated policies that support sustainable energy transitions.
A Valuable Contribution
The Kleinman Center has earned a reputation for promoting fresh thinking about how we might make these transitions. Our independent research agenda is only possible through the generous support of donors.
Making a Difference

We support Penn research through a variety of programs and bring distinguished and diverse energy leaders and scholars to Penn for visits and residencies.
Develop Tomorrow’s Leaders
We encourage students from across disciplines to participate in our energy courses and professional development programs, and we connect them to key resources.
Convene Today’s Leaders
We gather thought leaders with diverse backgrounds and interests for productive conversations that tackle the world’s most urgent energy challenges.
Ben Franklin was Penn’s first energy scholar. He discovered electricity, developed the lightning rod; and designed fire insurance—integrating impact across science, technolgy and policy.
