Engagement and Collaboration

Engaging Community Stakeholders and Building Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partnerships and collaboration define the Institute's approach to fulfilling its mission. We partner with the Dartmouth Sustainability Office, the Revers Center for Energy, Sustainability, and Innovation at Tuck, and the Thayer School of Engineering to offer events and opportunities, from our Energy Currents educational series to our bi-weekly lunch seminars featuring speakers on energy and society related topics. The DEC has broad reach across and beyond campus, fosters learning and exchange across wide-ranging energy topics, and emerging issues.

Our partnership with the Dartmouth Outing Club has resulted in the ongoing, student-led installation of solar panels on the club's cabins. We work closely with the Dartmouth Energy Alliance, a student group focused on building an undergraduate community of energy-focused students. 

We connect our students, faculty, and alumni with regional, national, and international organizations, ranging from the New England Women in Energy and Environment to the UN Forum on Sustainable Energy and the Environment. And we facilitate opportunities for stakeholders from multiple perspectives and positions — from community member, to industry executive, to researcher — to communicate, collaborate, and, create new paths forward.
