Charlie Cooke sees clean energy as important to our nation’s – and the world’s – future. And as an energy policy expert at the University of Texas and a former Congressional staffer, he knows firsthand the importance of bringing quality information to our nation’s decision-makers and convening stakeholder dialogues to advance clean energy. He decided to become an EESI donor to support our work toward these important goals.

“EESI’s work on Capitol Hill in continuing education is not only first rate but also vastly needed with recent turnover of Members of Congress and their staff,” says Charlie, adding that Congress “needs good information to make good policies.” As a Congressional staffer, Charlie relied on EESI’s briefings and weekly newsletters for environmental and energy information and attended EESI briefings whenever possible because, he said, of their “uniformly high-quality and EESI’s great reputation for bringing the best people together to speak.” Now his donations help EESI continue this service for Congress and the policy community.

EESI is grateful for the generosity of all our donors – thank you so much for your support!
