MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI)

We're using innovation to power the future. Join us.

Exponential increases in global energy use. Political instability surrounding oil resources in the Middle East. Detrimental effects of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment. The scope of the world’s energy problems calls for a comprehensive portfolio of responses to technological, environmental, economic, scientific, and political issues.

MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) researchers are hard at work on that portfolio. They are not only addressing energy needs in the short term (alleviating immediate shortage, security, and environmental concerns), but also in the long term—finding secure, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable energy sources.

MITEI builds on MIT’s strengths in science, technology, urban design, economics, and other fields, bringing them together in an interdisciplinary approach to a crisis that threatens our security, our environment, and our economic future.
