A $27.5 million gift from Shell USA, Inc., will establish the LSU Institute for Energy Innovation and enable construction of the LSU Our Lady of the Lake Interdisciplinary Science Building, the university’s top capital priority. With Shell’s investment as founding partner, the new Institute for Energy Innovation will advance reliable, affordable, environmentally responsible energy for all through a just and equity-driven pathway.

The institute builds upon Louisiana's vast historical knowledge and energy expertise to leverage innovation and technology that will find new ways to fuel our nation.
