Explore Energy House is Stanford's first STEM based theme house.  It provides students an inclusive residential community and living laboratory to better investigate and address the connections between energy, sustainability, and climate change through interdisciplinary dialogue, exploration, and action. Learn even more through the weekly Explore Energy Seminar (CEE 208, ENERGY 108, ENERGY 208) facilitated by the house Resident Fellow, Holmes Hummel. Open to residents and non-residents alike!

Interested in joining Explore Energy House? Pre-assignment opens April 3 and we will hold open houses to learn more our residence on 5:00pm on Wednesday, April 5th and April 12th. Please come on by!

Explore Energy House, housed in Junipero, is a four-class house open to any undergraduate student (including transfers), regardless of major, who has a strong commitment to actively exploring any aspect of the energy field, including but not limited to technology, finance, history, social science, equity and justice, and/or art. It is not expected that students come in with domain knowledge, but rather that they have a shared desire to engage each other as we explore a wide range of energy ecosystems. Explore Energy House hosts events, workshops, alumni seminars, student-initiated and led workshops, and more.  

At Explore Energy, we are passionate about energy AND about centering the values of joy, hope, curiosity, exploration, and inclusion. Explore Energy is a home for students who are invested in relationship and community building and providing a place of encouragement and belonging for each other.
