About Us


Given the emerging need to address challenging energy problems with advanced methods in business and public policy, it is crucial to develop a full understanding in these areas and their integral intersection with fundamental science, engineering, and environmental aspects.

Columbia University Renewable Energy Society (CURES) aims to:

  • Provide a range of events and programs to educate and prepare the the next generation of leaders to address technological, market, and policy challenges in the energy industry.

  • Represent Columbia University’s commitment to clean technology companies, financiers, regulators, and scientists in the energy sector.

  • Build a strong global network that promotes the intersection between industry, engineering, academia, and government in energy.

  • Increase the number of Columbia University students who pursue careers in the energy sector, and increase the internship and full-time opportunities available to Columbia University students.
