The ISE is now entering its fifth full year of existence, and it has been wonderful to see it grow into a full-fledged member of the BU research community and a respected peer among academic energy research centers. During this extraordinarily difficult year, I am humbled to say that, despite many challenges, the ISE has been able to thrive and contribute. Prior to the pandemic, we were steaming ahead with research in our core areas of the clean energy transition, city climate strategies, clean mobility, and water. As this report chronicles, we increased the number and reach of our live events, published a wider set of research papers than ever before, and added superb new members to the ranks of our affiliated faculty, senior fellows, and advisory board. We were also honored to coordinate a university-wide effort to create a proposal to expand the ISE into a broader organization focused more generally on sustainability.
