The network for Digital Economy and the Environment (nDEE) is a collaborative project between three institutions: the Environmental Law Institute, Yale School of the Environment, and the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment at UC Berkeley School of Law. Since 2017, these institutions have worked together to support the emerging field of research at the intersection of the digital economy, environment, and energy. nDEE considers both the potential for negative and positive environmental impacts from technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and the internet of things, ranging from the supply chain sustainability impacts of e-commerce and the greenhouse gas emissions impacts of popular ridesharing platforms to potential energy efficiency benefits from new technology.
nDEE has two primary goals: 1) to provide funding support to researchers advancing knowledge in this emerging field--we have provided seed funding to 10 research teams to date; and 2) to foster a network of individuals and organizations committed to this work. We also aim to be a reference source for scholars and practitioners by maintaining a bibliography of relevant literature.
