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.
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.
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.
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.
EESI is an invaluable organization on Capitol Hill because it presents well-attended briefings and widely read publications about environmental and energy issues and policies - all while maintaining a nonpartisan stance.
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.
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.
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.
