Innovative Research Analysis Award Program — Who Qualifies, What We Fund

  • Encompasses an integrated systems perspective
  • Considers the implications of findings in economic, social, and environmental terms
  • Applies at local, domestic, and international scales
  • Leads to significant global impacts on energy sector transformation.
