The Organization

The Energy Foundation’s nonprofit mission is to serve the public interest by building a strong clean energy economy. Pragmatic and nonpartisan, the foundation supports education and analysis to promote policy solutions that build markets for clean energy technology. Advancing renewable energy, energy efficiency, and other solutions can open doors to greater innovation and productivity—growing the economy with dramatically less pollution. 

In the U.S., our programs include Policy, Public Engagement, and Strategic Communications. Program staff work on strategy development, policy innovation, and campaign design, focusing on the power, transportation, and efficiency sectors, and new markets, and build national and state support for clean energy and strong climate policies. Our States and Regions Team is a cross-disciplinary cohort of staff policy, communications, and campaign experts dedicated to advancing strong state and regional policies. Grantees include policy leaders, business, health, labor, environmental, faith, and consumer groups, as well as military organizations, think tanks, and universities. 

For more than 25 years, the foundation has supported grantees to help educate policymakers and the general public about the health and economic benefits of a clean energy economy. Grantees include business, health, labor, environmental, faith, equity, free-market, and consumer groups, as well as policy experts, military organizations, think tanks, and universities. 

The foundation’s headquarters are in San Francisco, CA, with satellite locations in Raleigh, NC; Chicago, IL; Las Vegas, NV; and Washington, DC. Energy Foundation China offices are located in Beijing, China.
