We need to power the economy with clean technology to address the climate crisis.
Clean, renewable energy (specifically wind and solar power) is now affordable and cost-competitive with traditional fossil fuel energy sources (such as natural gas and coal) — and is quickly becoming a mainstream energy source. The use of other clean technology solutions, like energy efficiency, electric cars, and smart thermostats, is also on the rise.
But, fossil fuel interests are fighting to weaken renewable energy policies and stop the adoption of cleantech solutions in order to protect their 20th century business models. I founded the Energy and Policy Institute to expose attacks on clean technology and counter misinformation by fossil fuel and utility interests.
The Energy and Policy Institute exposes attacks and deception by fossil fuel corporations, utility interests, and front groups through investigative research, analysis, and strategic communications. By disseminating our information through media, allies, and decision makers, Energy and Policy Institute seeks to disrupt fossil fuel-funded misinformation, separate polluters from policymakers, and accelerate the transition to a clean economy.
Energy & Policy Institute has:
Defended clean energy policies in 15 states, resulting in at least $3 billion in cleantech investment & deployment of over 4.8 GW of clean energy.
Countered clean energy opponents' flawed economic research & analyzed legislative and regulatory environment for cleantech in 27 states.
Debunked anti-wind propaganda and exposed national campaign plans by special interests to rollback policies that support the development of renewable energy.
