Help Advance Sustainable Energy by Donating to EESI Today!
“EESI is one of the most effective groups on Capitol Hill. They rely on credible scientific information to make the case for solid policy. I have worked in energy policy for many years and I turn to EESI for information because I know I can find the latest developments from the nation's experts in the field.”
The United States must act now to address the urgent challenge of climate change and to further an economic recovery based on clean energy. Congress needs EESI's help to build effective, innovative policy solutions based on sound science. EESI is a leader in providing policymaker education and working with diverse groups to explore policy options and develop innovative solutions in addressing the nation’s climate, energy, economic, and environmental challenges. Your donation makes it possible for EESI to quickly respond to emerging issues important to our nation’s transition to a clean energy economy.
