Creating a sustainable energy future
ESE's mission is to develop the engineering science and educate the future leaders needed to transform global energy supply, production/conversion, storage, and use to achieve energy sustainability. We combine theory, experiment, and simulation to transform the global energy system to sustain the people and the planet.

Professor Ines Azevedo provides her insight on EV's
An advanced geothermal project has begun pumping carbon-free electricity onto the Nevada grid to power Google data centers there, Google announced Tuesday. Getting electrons onto the grid for the first time is a milestone many new energy companies never reach, said Tim Latimer, CEO and co-founder of Google’s geothermal partner in the project, Houston-based Fervo Energy (co-founded by Alumnus Jack Norbeck).
Our interdisciplinary collaborators
Stanford Doerr faculty work with researchers across multiple departments at Stanford, often through interdisciplinary programs supported by the the Precourt Institute for Energy, the Woods Institute for the Environment, and the Natural Gas Initiative.
