Environmental and Energy Study Institute

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) is a non-profit organization based in Washington DC which promotes environmentally sustainable societies. Founded in 1984 by a bipartisan and bicameral group of Congressional Members, EESI seeks to be a catalyst that moves society away from environmentally damaging fossil fuels and toward a clean energy future. EESI advances policy solutions that will result in decreased global warming and air pollution; improvements in public health, energy security and rural economic development opportunities; increased use of renewable energy sources and improved energy efficiency; and the protection of areas such as the Arctic and coastal regions.

EESI educates policymakers and the public through timely information and innovative policy initiatives in the form of Congressional briefings, publications, task forces and meetings. EESI’s current programs are: energy & climate change; bioenergy, biofuels and biobased products from agriculture and forestry; and transportation & smart growth. The Executive Director is Carol Werner.
