About Us

MEI is focused on becoming an honest broker of energy information for Missouri and the Midwest through hard work and a board of Missouri’s energy experts and leaders. MEI will develop interactive and collaborative public/private sector partnerships and engage Missourians in energy education, science, technology and policy activities. MEI is not working to promote a single source of energy, nor are we working only on electricity generation. Energy issues cross many boundaries and our board members are committed to promoting a better understanding of all energy sources, their impact on Missouri businesses and citizens. We do this with the understanding that there is no silver bullet…success will take a silver buck shot approach. The Missouri Energy Initiative (MEI) is a nonprofit association of public and private sector entities. MEI is about culture change in Missouri to reverse current trends of poor public support for innovation, technology and education. We believe that providing greater access to non-partisan, science-based information is critical to changing the culture and the mindset of citizens and decision makers. MEI works to enhance and improve the energy business climate in Missouri by coordinating energy activities across all sectors of the Missouri economy, being an honest broker of energy information to the general public, educating K-12, Tech Schools and Higher Education students on energy issues, informing elected officials at the state and federal level on Missouri energy opportunities and issues, and providing a rich environment for energy research and development activities in the state. MEI is also the organizer of the 6th Annual Midwest Energy Policy Conference held in Kansas City Missouri on October 24, 25th 2012.
