At the Saint Francis University Institute for Energy (IFE) we work to be a reliable source of energy information for businesses, schools, policy makers, and communities. We are committed to establishing high-quality, authentic, and accurate information to assist Pennsylvanians in making educated and sustainable energy choices.
From resource assessment seminars, hands-on demonstrations and the organization of energy facility tours, the IFE engages the public in understanding the important, but often misunderstood world of energy. Each year we visit various schools and community events throughout the Commonwealth.
Our work is made possible through the generous support of various individuals and organizations, including: PA Department of Environmental ProtectionR.K. Mellon FoundationView More...
In addition to our outreach, we research topics relevant to the evolving energy industry, including feasibility, policy and environmental issues. The institute has provided real-life work and research experience for more than three dozen SFU students.
Since our founding as the Renewable Energy Center in 2005, we have educated a diverse number of individuals, farms, schools, municipalities, and businesses in Pennsylvania and beyond. The university's wind analysis has led to more than 200 MW of installed wind energy capacity in PA and our programs have encouraged Pennsylvanians to pursue a variety of clean energy projects. In the spirit of Saint Francis, our commitment is to preserving the environment while serving the community.
