About the Institute

Affordable, Sustainable, Reliable Energy for All

We have reached a critical moment in human history. The systems that enabled unprecedented advances in human achievement and wellbeing are also at the center of some of our most daunting challenges. We have an opportunity to find a balance between human endeavor and ecological sustainability. Seizing this opportunity requires us to find solutions that are multidimensional, collaborative, and responsive to larger societal needs and goals. 

The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society, launched with a generous gift from Irving Oil, the Arthur L. Irving Family Foundation, and Arthur L., Sandra, and Sarah ('10, Tuck '14) Irving, was created to leverage Dartmouth's strengths in interdisciplinary teaching and learning, engineering, business, and sustainability by providing solutions to critical energy problems faced by communities and regions across the globe.
