MIT faculty have, over the last several years, conducted in-depth multidisciplinary energy studies designed to inform future energy options, research, technology choices, and policy development.
Additional studies are now underway. These studies — grounded in science, supported by objective analysis, comprehensive in scope and input — underscore MIT's role as an "honest broker" on energy issues. Other MITEI activities, such as symposia that gather experts from academia, industry, and government, also generate reports on topics of interest to policy leaders. MIT's energy studies and reports are making a difference, providing both Congress and the executive branch with detailed recommendations to shape and influence energy policy debates, responses, and outcomes.
