The Energy Initiative coordinates and sponsors events that showcase a wide range of energy-related research being done across Duke University and by academic colleagues around the world. Most events are open to the public.

The Energy Research Seminar Series is a forum for faculty, researchers and students from Duke and other universities to learn about and receive feedback on new scholarly energy research. They provide an opportunity for the campus community to learn about and improve research discoveries before they appear in leading academic journals, and to interact with scholars whose research will often shape future science and policy. These seminars are held jointly with other university seminar series. Seminar organizers may apply for Energy Initiative support by filling out this application form. All seminars are held at Duke University unless otherwise noted.

The Energy Initiative regularly sponsors or co-sponsors research workshops on a range of energy topics. Each spring, the Energy Initiative also convenes Duke University faculty, research staff and students in an Energy Research Collaboration Workshop to share information about their recent work in energy materials, energy data analytics, energy markets and policy, energy and the environment, and many other areas. Information about upcoming workshops will be posted here when registration opens during the spring semester. Details of past workshops, including agenda and videotaped presentations, may be viewed here.
