ERG has a 40 year history of outstanding research, teaching, policy advice and scholar-activism. Our diverse and creative projects are a result of ERG’s unique collaborative culture. These often need innovative and unconventional approaches — in many cases in areas where traditional funding agencies are not yet providing support. ERG has researched and acted on:

  • environmental toxics
  • global change ecology
  • power systems analysis
  • renewable energy deployment
  • sustainable urban planning
  • environmental and climate justice
  • biofuels and land use change
  • financial tools for low-carbon economies
  • the economic and “social cost” of carbon
  • safe water and sanitation in the developing world

We thank you for your support to further ERG’s fundamental as well as policy-relevant research, research that also provides important funding and academic opportunities for graduate students.
