For more than five years, I have been attending the Energy and Environment Study Institute (EESI) Capitol Hill's Seminars and Conferences. They are well thought out, hosted, and attended. The accomodations and hospitality are excellent! When I chance to speak with other professionals at these events, they are some of the Energy and Environmental Industry's most talented, and connected. The topics could be ripped from the headlines of the major issues of the day, as our world is forced to deal with the environmental pressures of approximately seven billion people. The integration of these issues with our country's legislative and executive branches of government lend the gatherings a sense that these issues will be dealt with intelligently and forthrightly. Even when I am unable to attend, the EESI staff and professionals offer me the seminar materials in a very easy to access web-based, downloadable format so I might stay current on the issue at hand. The good people at EESI are friendly, courteous, professional and made-to-order for the perfectly insane pace of a world in which we live. I highly recommend the EESI organization, its direction and its excellent professionals.

I was an intern at EESI last summer. The staff are reputable and devoted to the their cause and thoroughly understand the scope of environmental issues they seek to tackle. I worked primarily in its development department, writing grants, communicating with donors, and drafting other reports. EESI has a great working relationship with its donors. That's because its congressional briefings are highly informative and effective for decision makers in Washington D.C.

Provide it with the monetary resources it needs to meet its annual budget, and more. EESI is full of great potential and money shouldn't hold it back from its great causes.

Environmental and Energy Study Institute provides well-balanced, objective, credible, thoroughly researched information on critical environmental and energy topics: climate change, transportation, buildings, energy and sustainability; and helps making better policy solutions.
As an intern at
EESI I have witnessed outstanding professionalism and dedication among organization staff. They are experts in each respective areas, and in the field of energy and environment in general. EESI are highly efficient, and achieve outstanding results with very small staff. In addition to all professional qualities, EESI staff is a team of wonderful people, and I greatly enjoyed being a part of this team during my internship. Carol Werner, Ellen Vaughan, Ned Stowe, Laura Parsons, Jan Mueller, - shared with me invaluable insights on sustainable energy and environment. They also helped me to shape my career objectives and life goals. I am currently using the knowledge and experience obtained through EESI internship to pursue a doctoral degree in environmental and energy management.

The Great!

Organizing Congressional briefings; bridging between public sector, private sector, and communities, and among different branches of public sector, in order to get better understanding and information exchange, - all of those ultimately lead to better and more sound policy solutions.

As a climate activist, I find EESI's Climate News indispensable for my work. I do a lot of publicity for climate abatement, and I quote new and valuable information from CN every time I present. I also post news from CN on my community's "Climate" bulletin board and update it every week.

In short, it's an invaluable resource.

I think EESI is one of the most effective groups on Capitol Hill. They rely on credible scientific information to make the case for solid policy. I have worked in energy policy for many years and I turn to EESI for information because I know I can find the latest developments from the nation's experts in the field.

I interned at the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) during the summer of 2010 and it was a great experience. The staff at EESI are all kind, enthusiastic and knowledgeable people and are doing great work informing Congress and the public about environmental and energy issues. From an intern's perspective, it was a great learning experience and from the perspective of someone who just wants to know more about environmental issues, EESI is a great go-to organization for thoroughly researched and unbiased information.

I have also referred to the EESI website during my research as a student. Not only did I find information which brought me up to date on specific issues but I also found links and references to other sources of information.

EESI could really benefit from an increase in donations and funding. Not only would it increase the quality of their work, but it would make it possible for them to focus on an even wider range of issues.

As an intern at Environmental and Energy Study Institute, I have gained invaluable knowledge on the delicacy of policy and legislation. EESI is a stable and modest educational force in the world of congress. The staff here work tirelessly to educate our policymakers and the general public on energy and environmental issues relevant to our economy, politics, and lifestyles. I can't imagine where U.S. environmental and energy policies would be right now without guidance from EESI these past 27 years.

During my time as an intern with EESI, I have gained valuable knowledge of the intricacies of government policy with regard to environmental issues. The staff at EESI is extremely hard-working and dedicated to their mission, and it is clear by the high attendance at our Congressional briefings that we are making an impact. EESI is a unique organization in that it seeks to educate the public and members of Congress on environmental issues without an agenda and without using scare tactics.

EESI provides insightful, non-partisan information which is highly useful for both policy creation and for the wide ranging clean energy industry segments. Their ability to research data and assemble into reports and presentations is excellent. As a clean energy professional I have attended their briefings and use their database of information routinely in marketing endeavors.
