Climate and energy

Offshore windmills

CEE is working to ensure that we adapt to the changing climate and develop both renewable and non-renewable energy sources to secure improved near-term quality of life without compromising the quality of life for future generations. Climate change, population growth, and societal change will stress aging infrastructure at a variety of scales in ways that are difficult to foresee. 

Tufts civil and environmental engineers are identifying innovative infrastructure components, fostering grid-level integration, and creating new long-term infrastructure planning paradigms.
