The Institutes of Energy and Environment organizes and hosts a number of recurring events.
Past Event Highlights
The Penn State Water Event is an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students who are working in water or its related topics to get updates from the water community at Penn State, share research, and network.
Several components of the environment, including the built environment and contaminants found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and the environment in which we live, can have positive or negative health consequences.

The theme for Energy Days 2022 is Mobilizing Energy and Climate Solutions. The focus will be on what it will take to mobilize solutions that achieve net-zero emissions or beyond. Within this theme, there will be four conference tracks: Advancing Technology Research and Development; Addressing Energy Inclusion, Equity, and Justice; Catalyzing Capital Investment; and Achieving Implementation.
The workshop will feature interdisciplinary presentations, panels and discussion groups with the goal of initiating new research collaborations and initiatives on fungal biomaterials.
This year's Colloquium on the Environment speaker is L. Hunter Lovins, president and founder of Natural Capitalism Solutions, a non-profit founded in 2002 to champion sustainable development.
