Building a New Energy Future

Our work accelerates the transition to a clean energy economy by supporting policy solutions that create robust, competitive markets and the benefits they bring.



Millions of Americans are working in solar, wind, energy efficiency, and other clean energy jobs—and the sector keeps growing.



Cleaner sources of energy bring air quality and health benefits, particularly to our nation’s most vulnerable communities.

Security Green New


Clean energy enhances energy security by increasing the resilience of our energy supply.



Much remains to be done to secure the clean and equitable energy future we need to tackle the climate crisis.

How We Work

We collaborate with partners to build and manage grant portfolios of diverse and powerful coalitions focused on promoting clean energy in the power, transportation, and buildings sectors.

Where we work

We work alongside grantees and allies across the nation to help educate policymakers and the general public about the benefits of a clean energy economy.
