The Lubrizol Innovation Laboratory (a partnership of the Chemical and Petroleum
Engineering Department and The Lubrizol Corporation) The University of Pittsburgh Centre for Energy is a research centre housed in the Swanson School of Engineering that is dedicated to improving energy technology development and energy sustainability. Comprising more than 70 faculty members and 200 students and postdocs, the centre is scheduled to be housed on a floor of Benedum Hall undergoing a $15 million renovation. The centre was created in 2008 to bring together energy innovators across a range of engineering and academic disciplines. It also sought to develop stronger collaborations with energy industry partners in the Western Pennsylvania. The centre’s faculty focus on five key areas of research that include energy delivery and reliability, carbon management and utilization, high-temperature and other advanced materials, energy efficiency, and unconventional gas resources. In February, 2012, the centre announced it had received a $22 million grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation. The donation, one of the largest ever grants awarded by the Mellon Foundation or received by the University of Pittsburgh, is targeted to strengthen the centre by creating at least four new faculty positions and eight endowed graduate fellowships. It will also purchase equipment and establish a fund to encouraging innovative research focused on smart grid technology, along  with providing general support for research infrastructure and the centre’s operations.

Notable alumni and faculty include-

Erik Buell — (1979) — Engineer, founder and chairman of Buell Motorcycle Company – subsidiary of Harley-Davidson.

John Choma— (1963, 1964, 1965, 1969) — Professor and Chair of Electrical Engineering- Electrophysics at the University of Southern California.
