Michigan State University on Monday unveiled its Energy Transition Plan, a strategic plan aiming to guide the institution to a more energy-efficient future.

The plan was crafted over the course of the past year-plus by MSU's Energy Transition Steering Committee, a 24-member group of students, faculty and staff charged with developing a plan to help the university reach its energy needs while remaining cognizant of environmental impacts and costs.

The Energy Transition Plan's goal is to guide MSU to a future where the university is powered completely by renewable energy.

“This is the first and most important step toward a renewable future at MSU,” President Lou Anna K.
