The Energy Program focuses on two, linked goals: reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and accelerating the adoption of renewable energy everywhere.
Our work is based in widely accepted science that calls for dramatic reduction in climate-forcing pollutants if we are to prevent catastrophic climate disruption. We believe fossil fuels cannot be a part of our energy future not only because of their climate impacts, but also because of the destructive practices required for their extraction. The only path towards a vibrant, healthy and sustainable future is one lined with truly clean, renewable energy sources.
In order to build enough public support to implement economy-wide policies that will drive a total energy transition, we need to ensure that people from as many diverse places and backgrounds as possible see and feel the benefits of renewable energy first-hand. Our focus is on having this transition happen in communities across the U.S.
