About Explore Energy

Explore Energy is a comprehensive student engagement and interdisicplinary energy education program at the Precourt Institute for Energy. Its mission is to engage students on energy and to increase energy literacy, experiential learning, mentoring, and networking at Stanford. We aspire to foster a vibrant energy community at Stanford, provide resources for students interested in energy (like this website), and create a cohesive energy circuit that bridges all of Stanford's seven schools.

Why Energy?

Energy matters

Energy connects to many critical areas including the environment, social equity and justice, sustainable development, and corporate responsibility. Energy is fundamental to human development: everyone uses energy. It is also the number one contributor to climate change.

Energy is a global challenge

The world is facing the dual challenge of addressing climate change while also increasing access to energy in emerging and developing countries. The world urgently needs a global energy system that is sustainable, affordable, secure, and accessible to everyone.

Energy is interdisciplinary

Energy research and education at Stanford is dispersed among many schools, departments, and programs. The Explore Energy program helps students navigate "everything energy"at Stanford to foster a more well-connected and resourceful student body, prepared to tackle the energy challenges of the future.

The Explore Energy program is aligned with many of the goals outlined in Stanford’s Long Range Plan. The program is committed to building a lasting legacy of energy programs, courses, literacy, connection, and mentorship at Stanford.
