About the Energy Foundation
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 and energy efficiency can open doors to greater innovation and productivity—growing the economy with dramatically less pollution.
A partnership of leading foundations launched the Energy Foundation in 1991 and Energy Foundation China in 1999. In the U.S., our program teams build broad support at the regional, state, and national levels to advance clean energy in the power, transportation, and buildings sectors, and to promote climate policy solutions.
For more than 25 years we have supported grantees to help educate business and community leaders, policymakers, and the general public about the health and economic benefits of a clean energy economy. Grantees include business, health, labor, environmental, faith, and consumer groups, as well as policy leaders, military organizations, think tanks, and universities.
The foundation’s headquarters are in San Francisco, CA, with satellite locations in Raleigh, NC, Chicago, IL, and in Las Vegas, NV. Energy Foundation China offices are located in Beijing, China.
