Temple Energy and Environment (TEE) Initiative

Mission Statement
The mission of the TEE initiative is to promote research, learning and understanding related to energy and environmental sustainability. This is a complex and challenging thematic with important societal implications. In response, TEE gathers relevant faculty expertise from a broad range of disciplines represented in the College of Science and Technology, the College of Engineering and the College of Liberal Arts. As a result, TEE can bring to bear tools that include advanced computational methods, interfacial science, geology, sustainability engineering and environmental policy to address important issues in energy and environmental sustainability. Collaboratively, insights to these complex research themes benefit from the distinct perspectives and skill sets of different disciplines.
