A nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, the Great Plains Institute is transforming the energy system to benefit the economy and environment. We combine a unique consensus-building approach, expert knowledge, research and analysis, and local action to find and implement lasting solutions.  

Our work strengthens communities and provides greater economic opportunity through creation of higher paying jobs, expansion of the nation’s industrial base, and greater domestic energy independence while eliminating carbon emissions.  

GPI’s goals for transforming the energy system: 

  • increase energy efficiency and productivity  
  • decarbonize electricity production  
  • electrify the economy and adopt zero- and low-carbon fuels  
  • capture carbon for beneficial use and permanent storage

Our work spans across more than 35 US states and focuses on four major areas: carbon management, communities, electricity and efficiency, and transportation and fuels.
