MIT Energy Initiative

The MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI), established in September 2006, is an Institute-wide initiative designed to help transform the global energy system to meet the needs of the future and to help build a bridge to that future by improving today's energy systems. The MITEI program includes research, education, campus energy management and outreach activities that cover all areas of energy supply and demand, security and environmental impact.
