I attended a policy brief organized by EESI. They provide outstanding speakers, well-researched supporting documents, and a highly organized event. In addition, I enjoy reading the timely posts on their facebook page and website. They have a plethora of resources available at no charge for the public, including a treasure trove of material for teachers and researchers. This is a superior organization with an outstanding staff who also provide meaningful internship opportunities for young people as well.

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute is a great organization that works tirelessly to inform the public, policymakers, and stakeholders on environmental and energy issues that affect not only the United States, but the entire World. The Environmental and Energy Study Institute has stayed true to its founding mission of providing accurate, non-partisan information on environmental and energy issues that are more important today than ever.

EESI is an outstanding way to support the education of Congress on energy issues. With so much misinformation out there, EESI provides unbiased facts to the Hill regarding climate change, renewables, natural gas, energy efficiency and a host of related issues.

The EESI team is extraordinarily effective at bringing people together, educating them on energy and environment issues, and working with coalitions to develop and implement solutions. Their small staff is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and totally dedicated to the cause of clean, renewable, efficiently used, energy – to combat climate change while enhancing job creation and energy independence.

Their briefings and publications are invaluable to Congressional staff. A couple of years ago I first attended, as an interested member of the public, one of EESI’s Congressional briefings. EESI’s Carol Werner was knowledgeable and articulate as the moderator. The panel was a mix of private and government representatives. Their combined knowledge covered all facets of the subject. The very large room was filled. A House staffer in the audience shared that he was doing committee work on legislation to facilitate migration to an “intelligent” electrical grid, to reliably and efficiently transmit electricity generated by clean, renewable energy sources. A crisp, intense dialogue between the panel and the staffer ensued - he relied on the information exchange to gain knowledge and insight, and brainstorm ideas, a critical part of the process to create more effective law and policy. EESI holds dozens of briefings each year on a variety of subjects, often at the request of members of Congress from both parties.

As a volunteer“fellow” at EESI for the last year, I have also seen EESI pull diverse groups of people together, public and private; national, regional, or state; left, right, or middle; to lay the foundation for widespread adoption of clean energy and energy efficiency. One such case was when EESI helped design a pilot program to enable energy efficiency retrofits for rural homes. The project uses an innovative financing mechanism – the resident pays for the retrofit cost by making loan payments through their electric bill. The savings from reduced energy use more than offsets the loan payments. The program is creating local jobs, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, reducing usage of foreign oil – and letting people live more comfortably! Some residents used to live in one room of their homes because they could not afford to heat all of it. EESI is now working toward enabling replication of the program, and proposed rules for a federal program have been published.

These are just a couple of examples of the highly talented, dedicated and efficient EESI team at work! By the way, Charity Navigator, the nation's premiere charity evaluator, has given EESI its top rating—4 Stars—five times in a row, something only 4% of non-profits have accomplished.

As a newcomer to the D.C. area, EESI proves to be an exciting place to immerse oneself in the environmental happenings of our capitol. While interning with EESI, I gained valuable insight into the inner-workings of our government and the importance of coalition-building. EESI provides materials that explain important environmental issues in ways that multiple stakeholders can understand and utilize. Furthermore, EESI proves itself as an active voice on the hill by making timely reposes to environmental news events and legislative affairs. They make an asserted effort to attend events across the city to learn from the research of other organizations and engage in progressive dialogue. The employees of EESI are dedicated to informing policymakers and citizens alike about the importance of achieving innovative solutions to our country's greatest environmental needs. They are central force bringing together important figures in the environmental community to have critical dialogue that drives the policy formation here in D.C. Many thanks for all their hard work and dedication!

EESI's commitment to educating congress in an unbiased and informative way is fantastic. Their congressional briefings constantly get positive feedback and their newsletters are comprehensive and informative. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about energy efficiency, renewable energy, climate change, sustainability, the list goes on. In addition, they are able to convey their expertise in an understandable and clear manner making it accessible to both policy makers and the general public.

They hold Congressional briefings on the Hill that are immensely beneficial for the dissemination of information on renewables and energy efficiency. Their weekly Climate Change News (CCN) publication is a succinct rundown of the most significant advancements and happenings in climate change both domestically and globally. EESI Fact Sheets and Issue Briefs offer great insight on selected topics. This non-profit is invaluable to the cause of renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental consciousness.

EESI does a fantastic job of collaborating with experts and integrating their own expertise to address the most relevant environmental and energy policy issues. I have been an intern here for the last four months and have found the staff to be not only extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields but also eager to help foster my own development. It has been an outstanding experience.

I was an intern at EESI for 5 months this past summer and it was a wonderful experience. Not only is the staff knowledgeable in this field, but they were all very helpful in providing advice and guidance for a recent college graduate like me.
During my time as an intern, I had the opportunity
to attend many of the Congressional briefings that EESI puts together on relevant topics relating to energy and environmental issues. From these briefings, I was able to see firsthand the volume of people that attend (from varying sectors of governmental and nongovernmental agencies, as well as staff from Congressional offices) to hear from experts on these topics.
Having access to that sort of information is invaluable.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the impact that EESI has by providing nonpartisan, factual, and timely information to policymakers and the public through their Congressional briefings, publications, and other educational materials that are available on the Internet and are widely disseminated all across Capitol Hill.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find ways so that funding for the work that EESI does could be increased. While I firmly believe that their work is invaluable in how useful it is, there is still a monetary value that is needed to help further the cause of educating policymakers and the public. EESI is extremely efficient with their current resources and they have already achieved a lot, but there so much more than can be done to help safeguard our environment and our national security by improving the United State's energy use!
