ELEVATE is a PhD program that trains students to solve technical, equity, and climate challenges in the energy transitiom. Join our first cohort of students in Fall 2021.
The rapid transition to an energy system based on renewable electricity sources instead of fossil fuels is one of the great challenges facing humanity. It also offers a unique opportunity to reshape our society to be more equitable and more sustainable. To address this challenge, ELEVATE draws upon expertise in a wide range of research fields to create an innovative graduate STEM program focused on resilience and equity in the energy transition.
Program activities include:
A core course on electricity market simulation
Training in leadership and public engagement
Interaction with communities and other stakeholders
Collaboration with students and faculty across disciplines
Students will also receive a certificate in sustainable energy systems from the School of Earth and Sustainability.
