About the Center

The Kleinman Center for Energy Policy at the University of Pennsylvania joins a critical issue with substantial resources to pursue innovation and impact of global significance. The energy system faces mounting challenges: improving competitiveness by removing structural inefficiencies and externalities; stabilizing markets by mitigating exposure to high-risk sources and supply-chains; and protecting human health and natural resources. Policy innovation drawn from the spectrum of ideas and interest is needed to reliably pivot from a fossil-fueled energy system with uncompensated external costs to one that optimizes energy productivity through smart demand, internalized carbon impacts, and sustainable supply. These challenges require advances in energy efficiency, technology development, renewable energy, and the financing and policy instruments needed to deploy these advances.

The Kleinman Center for Energy Policy was established in July 2014 with a $10 million gift to PennDesign from Scott, C’94, W’94, and Wendy Kleinman. The Center resides on the upper floors of Penn's historic Fisher Fine Arts Library and has world-class teaching and events space, offices for visiting scholars and thought leaders, and research facilities for Center staff and students.
