Funding Policy

The Yale Climate & Energy Institute encourages and supports research activities that are transparent, accessible and published in leading peer-reviewed journals. All research is proposed and conducted entirely under the direction of Yale faculty. YCEI accepts external funding as gifts and as grants in support of specific research projects or of topical research themes established by faculty in coordination with the YCEI Directorate and Steering Committee.

YCEI funding does not provide salary to participating Yale faculty. Following established protocols for academic research, the data and methodology underlying peer-reviewed, published work are made available on publicly accessible websites. Sources of funding are acknowledged in all publications. External support for YCEI research activities must conform to these policies.

Core funding for YCEI comes from a gift intended to promote undergraduate energy studies and research on sustainable forms of energy.
