Our Mission

Decarbonize the global energy system to address climate change

We push the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. We imagine a world where the energy needs of all people are met efficiently without damaging the atmosphere.

Our Approach & Global Reach

We are a 25-year-old organization with a startup mentality

As problem solvers and creative environmentalists, we achieve change in three main ways:

  • Modeling & Systems Analysis: Driving support for the most effective policy and technology strategies.
  • Technology Innovation: Facilitating the commercialization of emerging and proven climate change mitigation technologies.
  • Policy Advocacy: Working practically and objectively to catalyze realistic change that leads to major impact through legal and legislative advocacy.

We’re expanding our global footprint

With the support of our donors and partners, we are expanding our impact around the world. Our team of experts is working to engage with local partners and stakeholders to develop new ideas, design solutions, and advance in new innovative technologies and policy solutions that address climate change.
