Electrical energy presently accounts for nearly 50% of total US energy use. It is expected that electrical energy will strengthen its already dominant role in the US economy as electrical technologies penetrate traditionally fuel-based applications such as transportation.
The significance of electrical energy in the economy highlights the importance of energy research within EECS at MIT. In programs spread over the entire department, we address the generation, storage and efficient use of energy, especially electrical energy.
