Help us find practical ways today to confront climate change and advance renewable energy. Since 1984 we’ve brought diverse constituencies together to find innovative solutions.

EESI educates Congress and other stakeholders on science, technology, and policy options to confront climate change, promote clean energy and transportation, and foster sustainable communities. EESI builds diverse networks and coalitions to develop innovative policy solutions. EESI was founded by a bipartisan group of members of Congress in 1984.  Now an independent nonprofit that receives no Congressional funding, EESI believes that, by working together, we can reach our mutual goals: a strong, energy-efficient economy, solutions to climate change, and sustainable communities.

EESI regularly receives positive feedback about our briefings and fact sheets. Dr. Karen Wayland, Deputy Director for State and Local Cooperation, Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis at the Department of Energy said during one of EESI's briefings: "EESI, over my many years of Washington work on energy policy, has really been one of the amazing organizations to bring current issues right to the Hill and to the public. You always set up these great discussions that really touch on current issues of the day."
