Energy System Decarbonization

The Anderson Lab investigates operational methods for more effective integration and use of renewable energy technologies. Major shifts in world paradigm (agricultural, industrial, and internet revolutions) have occurred over decades, but the current shift in energy is happening far more rapidly. This effort is further complicated by a growing awareness of the need to understand and manage interactions among energy, food and water systems, leveraging modern communications and computational resources. The complexity and evolution of these systems and the earth’s climate lead to challenging technical, operational and economic problems.

Our approach is interdisciplinary, combining engineering, economics and mathematics to better understand the interactive forces of systems and markets.
