Founded by a generous gift from Stanford Alumnus Jay Precourt, PEEC works to improve opportunities for, and implementation of energy efficient systems, practices, and technologies. Concentrating on energy use, PEEC researches market, policy, technology and human behavioural barriers inhibiting economically efficient reductions in energy use; develops and evaluates ways of overcoming those barriers; educates students and faculty about energy use issues; designs and analyses policy options and informs public and private policymaking.
