The Precourt Institute for Energy Efficiency (PIEE), founded in October 2006, conducts research and analysis through interdisciplinary teams of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates students. The institute's mission is to improve opportunities for and implementation of energy efficient technologies, systems, and practices, with an emphasis on economically attractive deployment. Research includes technology development, economic analysis, policy analysis, and behavioral research.

PIEE adopts a broad systems approach, examining links among technology, policy, and market diffusion in areas such as: energy-efficiency problems in economic sectors such as buildings, transportation, and electric power; supply- and demand-side barriers and solutions to energy-efficiency challenges; combining engineering, economic, and political expertise in devising solutions to energy-efficiency challenges; and the decision making environment in corporations, public organizations, and households.
