Great Plains Institute

A nonprofit organization

120 Donors

A national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization based in Minneapolis, the Great Plains Institute (GPI) is transforming the energy system to benefit the economy and environment.

While the COVID-19 crisis is rightly the world’s focus at this time, we continue our work on the climate challenge knowing it, too, has had and will have disastrous effects on public health and our economy, albeit on a different timeline.

    Your donation can:

  • help communities power their economy with renewable and low-carbon energy
  • increase electric vehicle adoption by expanding charging infrastructure
  • lower emissions at scale through catalyzing efforts to capture carbon at power plants and industrial facilities
  • grow the bioeconomy and develop innovative, renewable bioproducts


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. Increased employment opportunities will be especially significant as our nation recovers from the Covid-19 crisis.

We are a nonpartisan organization that creates opportunities for different interests to work together and find shared solutions that result in more beneficial and durable outcomes.

We combine a unique consensus-building approach, expert knowledge, research and analysis, and local action to find and implement lasting energy solutions.

Your support today advances our work to develop innovative solutions to today's most pressing challenges to the economy and environment. We’re making an impact - from the community to national level - because we know how to bring diverse interests together who can enact lasting, positive change.

Thank you for investing in our work to transform the energy system to achieve a better world!
