Texas A&M Energy Institute (EI)


There is no single solution that will serve as the silver bullet to meet our nation's long-term energy demands in a way that ensures security, consistency and predictability of the U.S. energy supply. The Texas A&M Energy Institute was established to engage in basic, applied and applications research and technology development, demonstration and deployment across the entire spectrum of energy-specific resource domains that will be required to guarantee that our nation's energy future is secure. EI will conduct research both within specific energy resource domains and at the connected boundaries of multiple energy resource domains to exploit the enormous benefits inherent in an integrated approach to the production and utilization of our country's vast energy resources.

Our mission is to bring together all persons and parts of Texas A&M University under a single umbrella organization. We will include all researchers in every college and state agency working on energy-related research. We will foster energy education and training. We will be the portal for those outside of the university to find and engage those inside the university to help solve energy-related problems. We also plan to be the portal for our faculty, staff and students to find industry collaborators who are interested in sponsoring research and hiring our graduates.

Our vision is to be the best in the world working with industry to define and solve energy problems. We can listen to those in industry who truly know the right problems to be working on. If we do this, not only do we improve the standard of living for all, but we will produce graduates who will be highly sought by industry, government and academia.
