Our Mission

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

How We're Different

We are a twenty-two year old organization with a startup mentality and an honest perspective. We are problem solvers and creative environmentalists who achieve change in three main ways: 

Technology Advocacy

Facilitating the commercialization of emerging and proven climate change mitigation technologies.

Policy Advocacy

Working practically and objectively to catalyze and spark realistic change that leads to major impact through legal and legislative advocacy.

Thought Leadership

Driving support for the most effective policy and technology strategies.
