University of Southern California-Energy Institute is a research institution located in Los Angeles, California.

The Energy Institute (EI) is developing a cross-disciplinary research program that both advances the science of alternative fuels and energy conversions and addresses the economic, social, environment and policy issues associated with transitioning to a new energy/fuel paradigm.

Key areas of research include:

  • Technology developments in renewable energy
  • Energy efficiency applications in buildings and transportation
  • Improved efficiency of combustion and oil recovery
  • Climate change science, sequestration and policy
  • Environmental impacts of energy on air, land and water
