Convergent Graduate Training and EmPOWERment for a Sustainable Energy Future

Developing the next generation of leaders in sustainable energy.

As energy markets become more decentralized and digitally driven, harnessing new energy technologies with innovations in policy, markets, and business strategies to reduce global carbon emissions becomes paramount.  

The EmPOWERment Program addresses these challenges by offering interdisciplinary training in energy-system modeling, data science, energy policy, business, and energy technologies to the next generation of innovative leaders in sustainable energy.

Students completing a PhD program in any energy-related field can apply to supplement their studies with an EmPOWERment NSF Research Traineeship.
