Strategic Energy Alliance is a cross-campus effort of the Precourt Institute for Energy.

Strategic Energy Research Consortium

Main content start

SERC was established by the Strategic Energy Alliance to support fundamental, pre-commercial, high-risk, high-reward research in the field of energy. SERC provides an opportunity to develop and explore novel concepts in the area of energy science, technology, systems analysis, and policy and is modeled on the Global Climate & Energy Project, which completed its run at Stanford in 2019.
