Support the MIT Energy Initiative

Giving to MITEI

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

The scope of the world's energy problems calls for a comprehensive portfolio of responses to environmental, economic, scientific, security, and political issues.

Under the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI), Institute researchers are hard at work on this portfolio, addressing alleviating immediate shortage, security, and environmental concerns. We are also working to find secure, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable energy sources.
