Welcome to Stanford Energy Global Programs! 

Stanford Energy Global Engagement Programs address the challenge of global energy transition. Programs examine international issues, transitioning regional energy systems, and the unique challenges germane to energy sectors. Showcasing the campus-wide efforts of over 300 energy-focused faculty from all seven schools of discipline, the core research of the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy, and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Global Engagement Programs address key levers in global decarbonization such as financing energy transitions; global policy, security, justice, and equity; and technology acceleration for deployment at speed and scale. Modeling Stanford's interdisciplinary approach, key stakeholders from a cross-section of industry, government, non-profit, and academia converge to address the challenge of decarbonizing the global energy system.

More Information

Industry touch-points take place throughout the energy landscape at Stanford. Stanford University's Precourt Institute for Energy concentrates the talents of the university on energy research and education, from basic science and technology to policy and business. Explore pathways for your company to engage with Energy Initiatives here. Explore Stanford Energy by topic here.


Addressing climate change and environmental justice have become top priorities for the U.S. federal government, and others world-wide. Most recently, energy has returned as a top national security concern. To explore, understand and appreciate the call to action, we are launching two important gatherings in November of 2022. 

Stanford Global Energy Forum participants will examine and synthesize the latest developments into concrete actions we can take in our work. Transitioning to low-carbon energy systems while extending the benefits of these systems to all people is a huge, dual challenge. It also offers the biggest opportunity of the 21st century.  How businesses, government, research institutes and civic organizations seize this opportunity could benefit not just our environment, but the global economy and national security.

Stanford Energy Innovation Day is a one-of-a-kind convening of Stanford's energy technology ecosystem that brings together a stakeholder community, showcases start-up technologies, and features critical dialogues on deploying energy solutions at speed and scale.

The opportunity for individuals from these entities to engage in person and find potential collaborations this November should be exciting and fruitful. 

We hope that you will join us at Stanford's campus in May for Stanford Energy Solutions Week so that our current and future leaders can together explore, understand and help shape the future of energy.
