MIT Department of Facilities
The Department of Facilities creates, cares for, and powers MITís physical environment, and its construction, renovation, and utilities projects offer a range of opportunities for energy conservation measures. To reach the goals of MITís MOU with Eversource, the Efficiency Forward team collaborates with and/or reports about multiple DOF teams within its Campus Construction and Facilities Operations groups, including Project Management, Campus Services & Maintenances, Utilities, and Engineering & Energy Management, which oversees the departmentís GHG reduction program and the process of campus decarbonization in partnership with MITOS.
Eversource is New Englandís largest energy delivery company, with approximately 4 million electric and natural gas customers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Here in MA, the Eversource electric service area covers more than 3,000 square miles and includes 140 towns. The Eversource natural gas service area in MA covers more than 2,000 square miles and includes 116 towns.
MIT Office of Sustainability
The MIT Office of Sustainability (MITOS) was established in 2013 under the Executive Vice President and Treasurer's Office to integrate sustainability across all levels of MITís campus by engaging the collective brainpower of the students, staff, faculty, alumni, and partners. Its overarching goal is to ensure that sustainability is a critical part of MITís standard operating procedures and is fully integrated into the working, research, teaching, social, and cultural spheres of our campus.
MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI)
The MIT Energy Initiative is MITís hub for energy research, education, and outreach. Through these three pillars, the program helps develop the technologies and solutions that will deliver sources of energy that are clean, affordable, and plentiful. Its mission is to create low- and no-carbon solutions that will efficiently and sustainably meet global energy needs while minimizing environmental impacts, dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and mitigating climate change.
