E4C: Center on Energy and Climate Change
The interdisciplinary Energy4Climate Center (E4C) launched in June 2019 by the Institut Polytechnique de Paris and École des Ponts ParisTech is involved in the energy transition through research, training and innovation.
Nearly 30 laboratories are working within E4C on four cross-cutting themes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, deploy renewable energy and propose relevant energy policies.
The center's activities are developed by its researchers in conjunction with players in the socio-economic world. They combine social and economic sciences, materials sciences and engineering, applied mathematics, computer science and geophysics. The center develops instrumental platforms, models for energy forecasting and prediction, and a data center: the E4C DataHub.
Training the future generation of energy players is also a priority for E4C. It offers Masters and PhD tracks, an entrepreneurship track for students wishing to create a start-up and an international student challenge.
