We study public health, environmental and climate dimensions of energy production and use.


Our three formal areas of research — Clean Energy, Energy and Environment, and Environmental Health — address energy production, public health, and the natural environment. We publish vetted scientific analyses to fill knowledge gaps in these areas and to inform evidence-based policy at the local, state, and federal levels. Stay tuned for more information on our research in these areas as we build out our brand new site.
