Our Mission

The Colorado State University Energy Institute develops innovative solutions to global energy challenges and works to actively achieve global impact.

To do this we use science to study and quantify energy impacts; technology to develop solutions; policy studies to help shape governmental response; entrepreneurship and economics to implement those solutions at scale; and behavioral sciences to include the human dimension.  We work with students and the general public to create an educated populace and to develop future leaders in the field.
