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.
EESI is a great resource for anyone interested in environmental and energy issues. Before I became involved in the organization, I regularly attended their Congressional briefings and the annual Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Expo. One thing that makes this organization unique is the wide breadth of issues it covers--for a small staff size, EESI is able to cover a large number of relevant topics, making the organization an asset for both Hill staffers and NGOs. The fact sheets, issue briefs, and newsletters are also especially helpful and I have been able to use them as a resource in both professional and academic settings.
Producing non-partisan information about current climate news to the public as well as Congress is important work and I think EESI plays an invaluable role in the nation's environmental and energy industry.
EESI does an excellent work in providing reliable and up-to date knowledge on the hill and to the public about environmental and energy issues.
EESI produces an incredible amount of reliable, up-to-the-moment information for the public and policymakers (astounding amount for its staff size!). It is my essential go-to for issues involving the environment and climate change. I'm so grateful this organization is here to educate, inform, and provide the unbiased, scientific information people of all political parties and perspectives. Nothing gets lost in the weeds with them - their mission and dedication to evidence is clear in everything they do.
EESI is a staple on Capitol Hill. Their steady stream of informative, interesting briefings provides very important information about renewable energy and environmental issues to staffers, Representatives and Senators. EESI staff are experts, and very willing to collaborate with different organizations and people to make change happen. I highly recommend this nonprofit.
EESI is one of the most efficient and effective non-profits in the field of environmental policy. I had the great pleasure of interning for EESI this past spring, and I must say, I doubt any other internship will ever come close. The staff members are all warm and welcoming, passionate about their work. The briefings and events are informative and interesting.
Along with writing for the organization's weekly publication, Climate Change News, interns were encouraged to take on projects of their own interest. This included fact sheets, briefing notices, and white papers. We were also highly encouraged to go out into the field and take advantage of the many energy and environment events taking place on and around Capitol Hill. Thanks to EESI, I have a greater understanding of the political process and climate change policy than ever before.
EESI's smart and diligent staff understand that climate change issues are complex and require systems thinking. These topics are not easily understood, but EESI breaks down information and makes the connections using scientific data in order to education policymakers and citizens.
EESI is an organization with a clear mission that they pursue with determination. There is no time wasted, but everyone involved enjoys the ride.
EESI bridges the gap between science and policy, thus playing an essential role in reforming energy policy in the US.
EESI is a truly amazing and hard working organization. I was proud to have been even a small part of their organization. After 4 years in the environmental field, I have yet to see any group of people devote the amount of time, energy, research, and standard of excellence that EESI delivers on a daily basis. They are a constant presence on the Hill and in the offices of Senators and Congressman on both sides of the aisle. I volunteered with this organization thinking I knew almost all there was to know about energy and the environment and in the first day, EESI showed me just how wrong I was. The information I absorbed from the hearings on the Hill are facts that I use in discussions to this day and it is the very type of information that no Congressman or Senator can afford not to consider in their policy decisions.
