Welcome to PIET
Our mission is to accelerate the development and commercialization of low-cost, clean and efficient energy technologies in the markets of developing countries. Interdisciplinary student teams work with mentors and partners in Central America, Africa and India.
The Program for International Energy Technologies has developed D-Lab to engage students in finding solutions to energy issues in developing countries. D-Lab focuses on innovative technologies and business models that can allow people at the “bottom of the pyramid” to save or earn more money.
Multidisciplinary faculty and student teams work with the community partner as the client to understand the specific technical, social, environmental, and economic issues.
