About CE3 

The Consortium for Energy, Economics and the Environment (CE3) is a hallmark of the Voinovich School, connecting stakeholders with experts to explore the multidisciplinary aspects of a given topic to form a balanced and well-rounded answer to an applied research question. The strong collaborative spirit of CE3 research and projects has influenced the Center for Entrepreneurship (a partnership of the Voinovich School and the College of Business) and our new Center for Public and Social Innovation which both build on our 30-year presence in the region. Combined with our academic programs, these applied centers offer unsurpassed services and resources for Ohio residents, with an eye towards improving the natural, built, competitive, and communal environments in which we live.

Ohio University Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs

Formed in 2005, CE3 is putting the energy and environmental expertise at Ohio University to work through the nexus of Projects, Research, Teaching and Learning. At CE3, faculty, staff, and students work together with local, state, and federal government officials, industry representatives, and Ohio nonprofit groups to develop solutions to energy and environmental problems that promote economic growth and sustainability. CE3 is a partnership between Ohio University’s George V. Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, Russ College of Engineering, and College of Arts and Sciences and works with numerous other entities at the University. Because of this multidisciplinary approach, CE3 has the ability to bridge the gap between scientists and policymakers, helping to explain the real-world impacts of proposed policies on future energy availability and the environment. CE3 is dedicated to providing nonpartisan research and analysis that supports decision-making related to energy independence, economic growth, and environmental sustainability on the regional, state, and national levels.
