How will new energy technologies reshape our world?

Exploring the impacts of energy systems upon our society...

Across the ‘system’ of human society, the adoption of future energy systems will have lasting social, economic, and environmental impacts. Projects within these themes will use a variety of social science and engineering techniques to examine possible benefits and disadvantages to various energy approaches. The viability and impact of technologies developed as part of the Future Energy Systems research program will also be analyzed within the system-wide theme.
