  • The MIT Energy Initiative
    fission nuclear fusion advanced materials for extreme energy environments carbon capture use and storage energy bioscience and the electrical grid MITEI s Low Carbon Energy Centers are a part of MIT s Plan for Action on Climate Change Our second pillar is education MITEI created and administers the interdisciplinary Energy Studies Minor for undergraduates Through this program and other initiatives such as the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program in energy MIT educates the next generation of innovators entrepreneurs and policymakers who will help solve our energy challenges MITEI s third pillar is outreach providing in depth high quality analysis about current energy topics for policymakers and industry leaders Our Future of studies are produced by multidisciplinary teams of MIT faculty and researchers and are an integral part of MITEI s outreach activities In May 2015 we released The Future of Solar Energy the seventh report in the Future of series Each report examines the role of a specific energy source in meeting future energy demand under carbon dioxide emissions constraints History The MIT Energy Initiative MITEI was built according to a template laid out in the 2006 Report of the Energy Research Council commissioned by President Hockfield The report called for new approaches to multidisciplinary research education across school and department boundaries a more energy efficient campus reached in part through student led projects and outreach to the policy world through technically grounded analysis It also emphasized the importance of another MIT strength partnering with industry as a prime locus for the clean energy transformation needed to address economic environmental and security concerns associated with the current energy system Drawing on the recommendations in that report MITEI was launched in the fall of 2006 creating a new platform for highly focused energy related activity at MIT In addition to the current

    the implied transformations Such pre competitive research has a time scale well suited to the university environment both because its impact is often beyond the time horizon for individual firms and because it prepares future leaders of forefront research Many of the expressed faculty interests fall in this part of the portfolio Renewable energy sources wind solar geothermal waves biofuels Electrochemical energy storage and conversion Core enabling science and technology e g superconducting and cryogenic components nanotechnology and materials Transport phenomena and Nuclear fusion Improving today s energy systems Needless to say the impact of MIT s energy research activities now and in the future will be measured not only by how they contribute to the science and technology base for the long term energy system transformation but also by how they help evolve today s energy infrastructure towards lower cost enhanced security and less environmental impact over the next decade or two This work is inherently closer to the marketplace and will need especially close coordination and partnership with industry Again many faculty are committed to enhanced efforts in this context Advanced nuclear reactors and fuel cycles that address cost safety waste and nonproliferation objectives Affordable supply of fossil derived fuels oil natural gas coal from both conventional and unconventional sources and processes Key enablers such as carbon sequestration Thermal conversion and utilization for dramatically enhanced energy efficiency including in industrial uses Enhanced reliability robustness and resiliency of energy delivery networks and System integration in energy supply delivery and use In addition to technology advances near term progress hinges critically on better understanding of societal and policy opportunities and barriers to energy system development MIT has a strong faculty cadre experienced in the integration of technology policy and analysis that can help shape the public debate on energy system
