Policy - Implementation of sustainable energy technologies and resources requires balanced policy decisions based on environmental and economic consideration.

The Center for Global Sustainability in the School of Public Policy is closely affiliated with the Maryland Energy Innovation Institute.

Faculty: Maureen Cropper, Nathan Hultman, Steven Gabriel, Kavita Surana

Safety and Reliability - The Center for Risk and Reliability (CRR) research covers a wide range of subjects involving systems and processes, and include topics on predictive reliability and human reliability analysis methods, advanced probabilistic inference methods, system-level health monitoring and prognostics, risk analysis theory and applications to complex systems such as space missions, civil aviation, nuclear power plants, petro-chemical installations, medical devices, information systems, and civil infrastructures. CRR is also closely affiliated with the Maryland Energy Innovation Institute.
