Management & Innovation

Researchers at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and in the departments of Economics and Management Science & Engineering study the way sustainable energy technologies and companies succeed. Examples of research topics in this area include the economics and marketing of advanced energy technology, the impact of energy technology on business and policy, entrepreneurship education, operational management challenges and the construction industry's barriers to adopting energy-efficient innovations. Also, the TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy's Energy Innovation Transfer Program helps inventors bridge the gap between sponsored research and technology commercialization through targeted funding to help develop prototypes, conduct market research and refine business plans.
