What is Explore Energy?

Explore Energy is the student engagement and energy education program of the Precourt Institute for Energy. Our mission is to enhance and amplify the Stanford student experience around energy. Why energy?

Explore Energy serves as a nexus for the rising number of students who are seeking more opportunities to both contribute to and drive faster energy transitions. We develop education offerings, catalyze connection, and build synergy within (and beyond) Stanford's energy ecosystem. Our goal is to provide students with a toolbox of resources and personalized matching to a vast range of opportunities through our program, as well as our on and off campus partners.
