Climate & Environment

Research focused on energy’s impact on climate and the environment and how the sector’s negative impacts on both can be mitigated

As a key focus of MIT's Plan for Action on Climate Change, climate and environmental research is also a focus at MITEI.

During the 2015 Paris climate talks, members of the MIT community reflected on global climate and energy challenges and solutions, and the potential for the summit to bring the world closer to a low-carbon energy future. We shared news and insights before, during, and after COP21.
