About Us

Energy Innovation Policy & Technology is a non-partisan energy and climate policy think tank. We provide customized research and policy analysis to decision-makers and thought leaders to support policy design that reduces emissions at the speed and scale required for a safe climate future.

Our work is based on scientific assessments of climate change. Our technology-neutral policy recommendations are grounded in data, driven by our open-source and peer-reviewed Energy Policy Simulator model and our climate policy book, Designing Climate Solutions. Our research is accessible under the CC BY license. Users are free to copy, distribute, transform, and build upon the material as long as they credit Energy Innovation® for the original creation and indicate if changes were made.

Vision

A climate safe future where people and the planet thrive.

Mission

To mitigate climate change by promoting the most effective and equitable energy policies.

How We Work

We focus on the biggest decarbonization opportunities, recognizing the next decade is critical to success. Our approach is scientifically grounded and practical, providing decision-makers with the confidence they need to enact policies that cut emissions, create shared prosperity, improve public health, and rectify environmental injustices. We foster a collaborative, inclusive work culture, where every person feels valued and is empowered to do their part to realize our mission.

People are worried about climate change, but are frustrated by their inability to affect meaningful change. The Big Fix, published by Simon & Schuster, is a seven-step action plan from Energy Innovation Founder Hal Harvey showing concerned citizens how to access the levers of power and fight climate change

Our Energy Policy Simulator underpins this work through timely and credentialed analysis of the economic, emissions, and public health impacts of different policies.

Our current project list includes:

  • Modeling the emissions and economic impacts of various energy and climate policies in the world’s biggest economies
  • Helping utilities in the United States and abroad transition away from fossil fuels and integrate larger shares of renewable energy into the electricity grid through clean energy policy
  • Reducing industrial sector emissions through clean energy, electrification, and improved manufacturing processes
  • Expanding electrified transportation, building electrification, and sustainable urbanization to reduce fossil fuel use
  • Supporting grantmaking to achieve strategic climate and clean energy philanthropic goals
