EESI gives the most balanced, useful, complete and relevant information on topics concerning the environment and energy. I use their fact sheets and white papers all the time for my work within these fields. EESI is the Go To organization.
What makes EESI different is their history of working on a bipartisan basis to provide facts and guidance to lawmakers, regulators, and the public. This is such an important act now that people are talking past each other on the environment and future energy.
The need for Climate Change knowledge is imperative to the survival of our planet and your site is a key to that knowledge. Thank you.
As a current intern at EESI, I have seen firsthand the passion and knowledge that every member of the staff has, as well as their commitment towards providing current, nonpartisan information on pressing environmental issues to policymakers, the media, and the public. In a time where the advancement of commonsense environmental policy is threatened, the work that EESI is doing is more important than ever. I have already benefited so much in my short time with EESI, and I am proud to be part of such an established organization!
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute is one of the most comprehensive and proactive environmental organizations. They work to educate the public and Congress on current energy issues in a simplified manner and push the climate-oriented agenda forward. Their staff is also well-versed and passionate about their issue areas. I appreciate their work in different facets such as infrastructure, public health, and renewable energy.
There's just so much time in the day to stay informed on various clean energy/technology issues. That's even more true today given expanding markets and volatility in budget and political actions. That's where EESI comes in: a trusted, valuable and timely source of information.
I am an environmental documentary filmmaker researching a project on sustainability. I discovered EESI about a month ago, and have since then, received their newsletter and turned to their website daily as a source of news. They have made me aware of many stories that I otherwise might never have found. I trust this organization as a source.
I am involved with the Citizens Climate Lobby. Its function is to heighten Congressional awareness of the climate change factor. The CCL has a proposal that it believes is an important way to implement the reduction of carbon in the atmosphere and it wants the members of Congress to support this proposal with legislation effecting change.
The EESI has helped me understand and follow the activities that are being done to
confront the climate issue. It provides me with information and guidelines in my role to try and influence my member of Congress. It puts me in a more learned position.
I do not understand why the members of Congress are not using the EESI source more in their work, particularly since Congress established the organization in the 1980s.
I interned at EESI for a semester. My time at EESI has been the most rewarding experience I have had. This internship has been very independent. My supervisors gave me a great amount of freedom throughout the research and writing process and provided helpful guidance and support as needed. I also had the opportunity to get involved in staff meetings, congressional briefings, hearings and other events. I strongly recommend EESI to those who are interested in environmental and energy issues and you will never regret.
I am a free time politician and I search arguments to influence the government in Estonia. I can afford it
Living in Illinois, I need to keep abreast of how renewable energy, agriculture, and other sources impact our hope for clean environment. I frequently forward this letter to friends and other organizations. Thank you for giving a perspective that is not covered elsewhere. Kay Ahaus

Consistently provides experts' high quality information critical to decisions of national and global importance.
Extremely informative about all aspects of energy and environment, especially climate change.
EESI keeps me updated on climate and other environmental issues in Washington, with just the right amount of depth and breadth. It is absolutely unique --timely, intelligent and focused. I look forward to reading it.
They only do impactful work, making it a MUST-READ. Plus, they tell me what's coming out of Washington that's useful and important.
Electric co-ops will be supported through the partnership to develop “on-bill financing programmes” for energy efficiency upgrades, community projects in solar, and clean energy storage. On-bill financing gives electric co-op members the ability to finance energy improvements that are repaid over time on their bill.
I'm excited about working with EESI in rural NC.

I have been a lecturer of Environmental studies at Ruaha Catholic University for about 5 years.Moreover I have been a Subscriber of the magazine called European Environment for a period of 10 years.
GREAT TO FIND NEW EMERGING TOPICS TO SAVE ENERGY AND OUR ENVIRONMENT.
A tremendous source of quality data and information. Thank you for helping me stay informed on such important topics and issues that are evolving rapidly.
EESI is the go to source for facts. They only use reliable sources and would never want to mislead the public on any information. They have no political slant, and do not favor/put down any companies. They simple want to educate the public and the political sector on environmental and energy facts. More than just educating on the facts, they offer solutions. They do not just present a problem, but they show REAL solutions that have been used and tested and even help implement some of them. EESI helps utilities set up on-bill financing programs for energy makeovers of low-income houses. The loan is repaid through their utility bill each month. They have briefings for Congressional staffers and members of Congress themselves. I think this is so important because often times those with political authority are not able to educate themselves on everything there is to know, so EESI is here to help clear any gaps of uncertainty when it comes to environmental and energy facts. EESI’s fact sheets are the most helpful way to get a solid background on a particular topic. Their articles keep you updated with news and educate you on environmental facts while doing so. I know EESI is making a difference on the Hill and to the general public with education and outreach and I hope to see nonprofits flourish for decades to come.
Information is timely and reliable; focused on many of the most important issues of the day.
EESI hosts great briefings and provides consistently great updates on environmental issues, agendas, policies. If you're able to attend one of their sessions in person instead of just receiving newsletters, it is an awesome experience. I highly recommend it! Great nonprofit providing the latest information and access to the experts and policymakers at the forefront of environmental issues!
