Integration of Gas and Renewables
Program on Energy and Sustainable Development (PESD)
PESD is an international, interdisciplinary program that draws on the fields of economics, political science, law, and management to investigate how real energy markets work. This means understanding not only what is technologically possible and economically efficient but also how actual political and regulatory processes lead to outcomes that are more costly and less effective than they could be.
The Benson Lab is a research group in the department of Energy Resources Engineering. We investigate fundamental characteristics of carbon dioxide storage in geologic formations as well as low-carbon energy system modeling and optimization as means of climate change mitigation.
