The MIT Energy Club is a very active campus-wide student run organization with a busy calendar of events on a wide variety of activities related to energy and the environment. The club hosts lectures by business leaders, policy makers and civic organizations. They organize tours of local facilities, as well as discussion programs and social events. And they post information on jobs that may interest students.
The MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) recently reached its fifth anniversary. It 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.
