Support for Universities

As one of the world's largest investor-owned power and gas companies, we feel it is our responsibility to actively promote energy research. Our contacts with universities offer students an opportunity to get to know our company and the focal points of our research.

The following table shows an overview of our support for universities. Not included are third party funds, which make the even bigger part of our energy research spending.
