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.
Contributions from MITEI Affiliate Members advance the overall goals of the Initiative and specifically support one of the following student-oriented programs at the Member's discretion:
MITEI supports a range of activities for its members, providing them with a program of policy and public outreach that includes a range of symposia, colloquia and seminars, a website, an annual MITEI research conference to which all MITEI members are invited to hear research results and policy discussions, and discounts for executive education and other energy conferences at MIT.
