How do we achieve a healthy economy and a healthy environment?
We take a pragmatic, non-partisan approach to solving our energy and climate change challenges – working with diverse interests to transform the way we produce, distribute, and consume energy to be both environmentally and economically sustainable. Through research and analysis, consensus policy development, technology acceleration and local action, we are leading the transition to clean, efficient, and secure energy.
To transform the energy system, we strive for innovation in its component parts: production, distribution, and consumption. Our portfolio approach includes seven program areas:
Maximize economy-wide investment in energy efficiency.
Modernize the nation’s energy infrastructure to accommodate more renewable and low-carbon energy.
Capture the economic and energy security benefits of fossil fuels, while continuously reducing the carbon and environmental impacts of their production and use.
Foster the sharing and exchange of policies and technologies with nations leading the energy transition around the world.
Build an energy system based on renewable sources of electricity and fuels.
Catalyze adoption of sustainable best practices that impact a community's economy, environment and quality of life.
Accelerate adoption of domestic, lower carbon transportation fuels, improve vehicle efficiency and promote better urban development.
