    Energy for Today and for the Future

    At the Saint Francis University Institute for Energy (IFE) we work to be a reliable and unbiased 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.

    We will blow you away

    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.  Our work is made possible thanks to the generous support of a number of individuals and organizations, including The Reinvestment Fund's Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) and the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies.
