About YCEI

Yale Climate & Energy Institute promotes interdisciplinary research that leads to a better understanding of climate change and its links to modern energy use. 

YCEI programs include Postdoctoral Fellowships, Seed Grants for Interdisciplinary Research, Grants for Workshops and Conferences, and the Energy Studies Undergraduate Scholars Special Academic Program. New research initiatives are now being developed around the themes of climate change and health, with the Yale School of Public Health, and of improving regional climate assessments, with a group of universities in the Northeast. YCEI is also supporting a project at Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies on the monitoring of groundwater during development of unconventional (shale) gas reservoirs by hydraulic fracturing.
