GTI Energy is a leading research and training organization focused on developing, scaling, and deploying energy transition solutions. We leverage the expertise of our trusted scientists, engineers, and partners in collaborations that deliver the innovations needed for low-carbon, low-cost energy systems. The energy industry is facing significant challenges and opportunities, including the reduction of carbon emissions, achieving net zero, transitioning to clean energy, and ensuring fairness in energy distribution. GTI Energy will help meet these opportunities by developing a digital interoperability platform that supports encoding industry subject matter expertise and knowledge and allows data assets to be easily shared, accessed, and reused. The platform should prioritize machine actionability, allowing computational systems to find, access, and use data with little to no human intervention. This will support improved findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reuse of digital assets in the industry. The platform would enable industry scale analysis based on data and digital products maintained by the many diverse organizations representing the industry. As an energy industry leader and subject matter expert, GTI Energy can focus on improving interoperability across many organizations. In contrast, commercial software and services providers are motivated to create interoperable value within single organizations.



Our mission is to help bring the real-world into the classroom by providing engineering students with practical hands-on experience through industry-sponsored and client-based capstone design projects. Since its inception, the Learning Factory has completed more than 1,800 projects for more than 500 different sponsors, and nearly 9,000 engineering students at Penn State University Park participated in such a project.
