MIT Energy Initiative


The MIT Energy Initiative is MIT’s hub for energy research, education, and outreach. Through these three pillars, we help develop the technologies and solutions that will deliver clean, affordable, and plentiful sources of energy. Our mission is to create low- and no-carbon solutions that will efficiently meet global energy needs while minimizing environmental impacts and mitigating climate change.

Helping prospective and current students learn about and take advantage of energy opportunities at MIT is one of our most important jobs at MITEI. Check out the specific offerings below and contact us if you have any questions. We’d love to talk with you.

Prospective MIT Students



MITEI staff and energy researchers across MIT regularly engage with representatives from industry and government in a variety of ways. A few are listed here, and if you have further questions, please contact us.

Whether you’re new to energy-related research or you’ve worked with us before, MIT Energy Initiative has a wide range of funding opportunities and resources available to MIT faculty members and researchers.
