Stanford University yesterday launched a $100 million institute dedicated to energy research.

The Precourt Institute for Energy will roll together Stanford's Global Climate and Energy Project and Precourt Institute for Energy Efficiency, and will add a new research center, the TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy.

Energy resources engineering professor Lynn Orr will lead the institute. Orr was director of the Global Climate and Energy Project. The funding will create 7 or 8 faculty positions and support fellowships for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.

The institute's research will include nanomaterials for solar energy and energy storage.
