Center for Air, Climate, and Energy Solutions

Carnegie Mellon University

We propose a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research center to address critical questions at the nexus of air, climate, and energy. The center design addresses overarching themes of regional differences, multiple pollutants, and development and dissemination of tools for air quality impact assessment. Novel measurement and modeling approaches will be applied to understand spatial and temporal differences in human exposures and health outcomes. We will investigate a range of technology and policy scenarios for addressing our nation’s air, climate, and energy challenges, and test their potential ability to meet policy goals such as improved health outcomes and cost-effectiveness.
