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.
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.
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.
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!
Excellent mission and execution. Keep up the good work!
EESI is consistently an excellent organization to work with and learn from. They organize a plethora of interesting and informative briefings on the Hill, providing reliable straightforward information to stakeholders and decision makers in the energy and environment fields. Carol Werner is an active and very well respected member of the energy and environment policy community in Washington, DC, and her organization is held in the same high regard. I'd encourage anyone and everyone to contribute to and learn from EESI.
EESI is a great, knowledgeable, thoughtful organization keeping us up to date on climate change related information, often with policy insights. Weekly newsletters such as Sustainable Bioenergy, Farms, and Forests, along with well-managed, intelligent briefings on Capitol Hill provide opportunities to hear and ask questions of experts in diverse fields covering a wide range of topics.
EESI has earned great respect on Capitol Hill over decades for quality, expert-based briefings, forums and publications developed to enhance understanding and informed response to climate change. Staff and materials provide a foundation for in-depth analysis and strategy development for mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change by a myriad of audiences.
As executive director of an organization dedicated to advocating for understanding, development and use of advanced biofuels as an alternative to petroleum, EESI's briefings, forums, newsletters, connections to decision-makers for policy, advocacy and industry constantly and consistently proves valuable in my work.
EESI staff retain a healthy skepticism and open mind as they help the world, particularly the US, explore evolving information about causes, effects and solutions or responses to climate change.
This organization must continue serving as a crucial guide to the multi-dimensional world of conscientious policy-making and social and business/industrial related to climate change.
EESI should not only continue its current work, but expansion would benefit its value to all of us. There's so much to do. EESI's valuable considered contribution, the expertise it has developed over decades and its culture of evaluation and promotion of wide-ranging ideas must continue. I urge all to do whatever is in your power to make this happen.
In the forefront of policy, energy conservation and low-carbon future
EESI's Sustainable Bioenergy, Farms, and Forests newsletter is an excellent end-of-week summary of the most timely and relevant topics with the potential to positively and negatively impact bioenergy and other clean technology development and deployment. In addition to capturing important headlines, EESI adds their own perspective to important issues and helps to frame the concerns with fact-based information. This outreach tool is a valuable mechanism for building awareness.
EESI supports their policy analysis with scientific basis. Their briefings are excellent tools for educating decision-makers and the public in general.
EESI puts on great events to bring together industry, non-profit, government, and academics in the renewable energy industry. It plays a vital role and has a much higher profile than many other non-profits in this space.
I Like Very Much Because is Top Solid Platform, on a Easy Simple Way, Well Done.
EESI is one of the organizations devoted to the environment and energy issues that is very careful not to make the information they present partisan or inject politics into its information. The organization does not demonize but focuses on expertise for how to make changes without affecting affordability and reliability. I read their material, attend their briefings relatively often and have changed my conclusions and deepened my understanding as the result of their work. They are one of the few "adults" in this particular policy space. Their budget is modest and carefully administered but they have an impact on informing public policy that far exceeds their size. I have watched them work for many years and their consistency of focus on their mission has not changed.
EESI is my go-to source for environmental and energy updates, information, and opportunities. It is the most comprehensive weekly coverage, as well as totally reliable and in-depth analysis, covering government (White House, agencies, Congress, and courts), private, and nonprofit sectors, as well as partnerships among the sectors.
Reading Climate Change News is the first thing on my Monday morning "to do" list. Since its inception, it's done much to inform my thinking on climate change and development of materials for a class I teach on Energy Technology and Policy. My primary interests relate to energy and environmental sustainability (se2.nd.edu).
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.
EESI stays on top of most new information coming out on climate change. It's an extremely useful oversight tool for keeping up with the latest findings.
I have attended several of EESI's briefings. Each had highly qualified presenters active in the particular subject space. Sometimes I knew most of what was being presented and sometimes I learned a lot. Sometimes I wished other experts could have been included. For those not specialized in the subject area, I am sure they would always come out with valuable information.
