Energy Materials at Harvard

Adapting current energy systems to reduce fossil fuel dependence and minimize impacts on climate, environment, and health is the grand challenge we face today. New materials are of crucial importance for meeting this goal. Materials are central to every energy technology, and advances in materials science can help raise energy efficiencies and resolve emissions problems. Harvard researchers work across disciplines to develop sustainable energy science technologies to ultimately address global climate challenges and reduce energy costs.
