Princeton is turning technological knowledge into concerted action on behalf of our planet. Work underway at the new Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, established by a transformative gift from Gerhard Andlinger ’52, combines engineering expertise, entrepreneurial spirit, and commitment to public service to develop solutions in the areas of sustainable energy, conservation, and environmental protection.
“We need as many creative, intelligent people working on this as possible, because the problems we face are daunting and urgent. We don't have any time to lose.”
—Emily Carter, the Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment; professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and applied computational mathematics; and founding director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment
