CMU Launches Energy Institute

Carnegie Mellon University has launched the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation, a major research initiative focused on improving energy efficiency and developing new, clean, affordable and sustainable energy sources.

The institute was made possible by a lead gift from CMU alumni Sherman Scott (E'66), president and founder of Delmar Systems, and his wife Joyce Bowie Scott (A'65), a trustee of the university.

The Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation is a university-wide initiative, and will be housed in Sherman and Joyce Bowie Scott Hall, which is being built near Hamerschlag Hall on CMU's Pittsburgh campus.

In addition to the Scotts, CMU has received support for Scott Hall from CMU alumni John Bertucci (E'63, TPR'65) and his wife, Claire Ruge Bertucci (MM'65); CMU alumnus Jonathan Rothberg (E'85) and his wife, Bonnie Gould Rothberg; and the Eden Hall Foundation.
