Our Mission

Our mission is to catalyze and disseminate research on the energy and environmental impacts of the digital economy.

The Initiative

The nDEE is formed through a collaboration between the Environmental Law Institute, the Yale School of the Environment, and the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment at the University of California — Berkeley. These three institutions provide the initiative with a presence on both the East Coast and the West Coast and bring in principal investigators with disciplinary expertise in law, policy, and environmental management. The initiative was founded in 2017.
