EESI's Annual EXPO, Energy Upgrades for Families, and More... All Thanks to You!

At this moment of urgency for climate action, you are making a difference. For example, you’ve enabled this timely analysis of what’s in the bipartisan infrastructure deal.

And you’ve helped push it out to subscribers of our biweekly Climate Change Solutions email newsletter! We cover the infrastructure deal and so much more - so you can stay informed. Want to subscribe? Click here! We have a strict privacy policy.

And just a couple weeks ago, you helped EESI to host its annual Congressional Clean Energy EXPO and Policy Forum. Five members of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, delivered messages. Panelists included professionals and leaders from the energy efficiency and clean energy fields.

The latest annual EXPO explored climate change in the context of national security and renewable energy. Speakers also covered the crucial topic of what addressing climate change means for jobs and workforce development.

You’ve also enabled four briefings for congressional staff, businesses, nonprofits, and the public on the benefits of a national green bank, electric vehicles, and more! Check out our recent online briefings here

Thank you for caring about the climate crisis and recognizing the essential opportunities we have in 2021 to provide sustainable solutions. You make all of our work possible, including the Richard L. Ottinger Internship Program.

EESI’s paid internship program allows people like me to learn about climate policy, clean energy strategies, and nonprofits—right now, on a remote basis during the pandemic. As someone who is studying philanthropy, I have gained invaluable experience through this program that will help me launch my career.

You, like EESI, also understand that there are many problems facing our world, including racial inequality, the need to recover from the pandemic quickly in a way that fosters equity, and the need for workforce development and sustainability.

We recognize that to achieve an equitable and just transition to a decarbonized, clean energy economy, we need to ensure that marginalized voices are especially represented in policymaking.

Thank you so much for joining forces to create this future together.

Best,

Ashlyn Devine
