IS TO SECURE A CLEAN AND EQUITABLE ENERGY FUTURE TO TACKLE THE CLIMATE CRISIS.
We envision a healthy, safe, equitable economy powered by clean energy. We believe a thriving clean energy economy can create sustainable opportunities, spur innovation, and protect our climate—for today and future generations.
Energy Foundation supports education and analysis to promote non-partisan policy solutions that advance renewable energy and energy efficiency while opening doors to greater innovation and productivity—growing the economy with dramatically less pollution. For nearly 30 years, Energy Foundation has supported grantees to help educate policymakers and the general public about the benefits of a clean energy economy. Our grantees include business, health, environmental, labor, equity, community, faith, and consumer groups, as well as policy experts, think tanks, universities, and more.
We are a complex, multi-site, multicultural nonprofit organization with big plans for the future. Under the leadership of our CEO, Energy Foundation has embarked on a major strategy refresh, a prioritized commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), and rapid geographic expansion.
Our comprehensive approach advances energy efficiency and renewable energy in the power, transportation, and buildings sectors. Our programs focus on developing innovative policies and campaigns to help propel clean energy development in these sectors. The Venues team is a cross-disciplinary team of policy, communications, and campaign experts dedicated to advancing strong state and regional climate and clean energy policies. The Policy team works to deliver strategy and network support services to our issue-focused grantees and funding partners. And the Strategic Communications team develops powerful narrative and communications strategies designed to build support for our work regionally and nationwide.
We lead with our values in every aspect of our work. We strive to be transparent and hold ourselves accountable to all people and living things.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
At Energy Foundation, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are top organizational commitments. Recognizing the interconnected nature of all forms of oppression, we continually assess and adjust our work and our behaviors to address societal needs with the ultimate goal of dismantling all forms of systemic racism. Much remains to be done to secure the clean and equitable energy future we need to tackle the climate crisis. We welcome the input of people already doing this work, of those who wish to work together, and of others in the field who could benefit from what we’ve learned so far in this vital work.
