Founded in 1984 by a bipartisan group of members of Congress to inform the debate and decision-making on energy and environmental policies, the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable societies. Our primary goal is to accelerate the transition to a new, low-emissions economy based on energy efficiency and renewable energy. EESI advances innovative policy solutions that set us on a cleaner, more secure and sustainable energy path. EESI's strength lies in translating complicated subjects into compelling stories, case studies, and user-friendly materials for policymakers and the public. EESI serves as a trusted source of credible, non-partisan information on energy and environment solutions—both inside and outside the Beltway.
