Energy at Dartmouth
Harnessing the strength of Dartmouth’s exceptional liberal arts faculty and the expertise of its professional schools, the recently-announced Institute for Energy and Society will address the intersection of energy and society from four perspectives: technology and science; business and economics; geopolitics; and society and the environment. New research and programs will involve nearly every academic department in an integrated and cross-disciplinary manner and be driven by faculty interest, and supported with student programming.
Dartmouth Energy Collaborative
The Dartmouth Energy Collaborative (DEC) is a student-led organization that connects students, scholars, business and policy leaders interested in energy issues. Our members hail from Dartmouth College, Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering and Vermont Law School, giving the organization perspective on the business, technical and policy facets of the energy sector.
Research in energy technologies is crucial to the future stability of human society. Faculty and students at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth synthesize ideas and expertise from biochemical and chemical, electrical, and materials engineering as well as physics, chemistry, and microbiology.
At Dartmouth College, we strive for environmental leadership by bringing together the best technologies, people, and ideas to find a sustainable way forward. The fuel oil and electricity required to power our campus buildings make up more than 95% of the College’s direct greenhouse gas emissions. This makes the Dartmouth Energy Program a critical tool in lowering the environmental impact of our institution.
The Neukom DALI Lab is a research and development lab in the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College. DALI combines the latest design and technology practices to maximize impact for real world partners. Students work together outside of the classroom, building prototypes while learning technical and creative skills.
