At-a-Glance
This collaborative educational project of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and Arizona State University (ASU) will develop new research and educational activities for graduate and undergraduate students focused on the international issue of energy in the 21st century.
Key Contacts

Current policy discussions in the U.S. stress the need for energy system change, even transformation, if national and global goals for justice and sustainability are to be met. This collaboration of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and Arizona State University (ASU) examined energy ethics issues that concern the responsible conduct of science and engineering and also those that arise in the interactions of science, engineering, technology, and society. It emphasized potential scenarios for the U.S., while acknowledging the critical roles other nations and international institutions play in the future of energy. It developed new research and educational activities involving graduate students in interdisciplinary research programs. For further details, see the project summary and the outcomes report.
