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.

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.

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.

The energy field is complex, and it remains a great source of untapped opportunity in our country. It ranges issues from energy efficiency, domestic and foreign fuel consumption, clean and renewable energy as well as security, jobs and the environment. EESI plays an important role in helping people in the industry as well as congressional leaders understand both substance and nuance. Please keep up the good work.

As a former intern at EESI, I am intimately aware of the organization function and the critical role it plays in educating our decision makers. Beginning with its dedicated staff, the organization provides an immeasurable service to the improvement of environmental and energy policy in this country. I am also deeply thankful for the opportunity to have worked there and the connections and opportunities it has brought me since. Keep up the good work.

EESI provides valuable, progressive clean energy and environment knowledge to the legislative community who are continually fed misinformation from high powered lobbying firms representing fossil fuel industries. EESI briefings provide strong content on a variety pressing energy and environment subjects which would otherwise not be heard on Capitol Hill. As the fossil fuel lobby's war chest is enormous with extensive reach, EESI is an important organization to support.

EESI performs a vital service in linking subject matter experts to Members of Congress and their staff on pressing and emerging environmental and energy issues and opportunities. Everyone would be worse off without EESI!

Spend all of its time on identifying and showcasing policy thought leaders rather than fundraising.

For the past two years we have been developing a national science education and outreach project, supported by both NSF and NASA. POLAR-PALOOZA will have reached 25 communities by Spring 2009, sharing the latest research at Earth's poles and its implications for climate change across the USA. EESI's regular news digests, and special climate change survey compilations, have been extremely helpful: current, comprehensive and insightful. We are now planning a new project, focusing on solutions, in which science centers and natural history museums can become (to paraphrase Brandeis) "laboratories of energy innovation." We hope to make EESI's news bulletins a component of our online materials. Why re-invent the wheel when the originators are doing such a good job!

The Great!

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

Take its Briefings national, making state and city officials as aware of energy and climate issues as it does on Capitol Hill.
