Creating novel sensors and systems integration technologies to produce stable and sustainable energy for California.
Information technology for energy — i4Energy is a growing community of experts and innovators who are defining and carrying out a research agenda to yield IT solutions for our energy future.
Every major industry has been transformed by new ways to gather, manage, and utilize information. However, in the business of bringing clean, reliable energy to consumers, this transformation is in its infancy. i4Energy is a nexus, bringing multi-disciplinary minds together to create information technology advances for our multi-layered energy challenges.
i4Energy is a vibrant community of researchers and innovators, rooted in its three founding institutions: the University of California’s Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS), the California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE), and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). With partners in industry and government, this powerful research collaboration is focused on creating an integrated information infrastructure that will transform our energy grid into a cooperative, “aware” energy network that is both efficient and able to use sustainable energy sources.
