Institute for Sustainable Energy
Boston University Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) is a University-wide institute that assists and promotes faculty research, and enhances BU’s curricular offerings and communication products related to sustainable energy.
We expand engagement and collaboration with outside stakeholders, including energy technology firms, public agencies, other universities and research organizations, and environment- and energy-focused NGOs.
At ISE, we’re dedicated to:
- Promoting and assisting world-class research by BU faculty working on these challenges within and across all disciplines within the University
- Educating BU students who will help meet sustainable energy challenges in their careers
- Promoting solutions to these challenges through collaboration with stakeholders outside the University
ISE is a new generation of “think and do tanks,” whose goal is to harness world-class research and education resources to contribute to important global economic, social, and technological challenges.
