Founded in 2008, the Great Lakes Energy Institute (GLEI) is an interdisciplinary research institute dedicated to catalyzing breakthroughs in energy sustainability that address the most pressing problems facing our world.  Located in Cleveland, Ohio and housed within the Case School of Engineering, we empower our faculty, students and partners to expand knowledge, deepen understanding, and create innovative and sustainable energy solutions.

Case Western Reserve climbed 20 places—to No. 47—in Reuter’s 2019 ranking of The World’s Most Innovative Universities, a list that identifies the 100 universities around the world doing the most to advance science and invent new technologies.

The Case School of Engineering helped place CWRU among elite company; just below the Technical University of Munich and ahead of Emory, Pittsburgh, Ohio State and Purdue.

At 47, CWRU is the highest ranked university in Ohio and among the highest ranked in the Midwest.

This diverse group of students from several CWRU schools will be learning about the various aspects of energy that are intertwined including policy, technology, research, and entrepreneurship.   Speakers from across the country from industry, government, and academia will be bringing their stories and experiences on energy to the group in weekly energy ThinkTanks.  We are looking forward to an exciting fifth year of the ThinkEnergy Fellowship Program!

With GLEI’s help, CWRU teaches students about the possibilities in the energy industry to match their growing interest.
