Research Projects

Our researchers explore critical issues and address challenges that have regional, national, and global implications.

About Our Research Grants

Each year, the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy awards grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 to support new research or supplement existing research in energy and climate policy.

We seek requests for proposals from University of Pennsylvania faculty, postdocs, and doctoral students for research projects in the areas of energy and climate policy that can leverage Penn research and support the advancement of our mission.

For questions about the research grants program, please email Angela Pachon
