The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, acts as a catalyst to advance energy efficiency policies, programs, technologies, investments, and behaviors. We are working for a future in which energy efficiency helps the United States achieve economic prosperity, energy security, and a healthy environment.
ACEEE carries out its mission by:
Conducting in-depth technical and policy analyses
Advising policymakers and program managers
Working collaboratively with businesses, government officials, public interest groups, and other organizations
Convening conferences and workshops, primarily for energy efficiency professionals
Assisting and encouraging traditional and new media to cover energy efficiency policy and technology issues
Educating consumers and businesses through our research, conference proceedings, press activities, and websites
ACEEE was founded in 1980 by leading researchers in the energy field. Since that time, the United States has made significant strides in improving energy efficiency across all sectors of the economy. Yet enormous savings opportunities remain. We are working to overcome barriers and accelerate the pace of efficiency gains to help consumers, create jobs, grow the economy, enhance energy security, increase resilience, and mitigate climate change.
ACEEE focuses on these program areas:
Energy policy (federal, state, and local)
Research (including programs on buildings and equipment, utilities, industry, agriculture, transportation, behavior, economic analysis, and international)
Outreach (including conferences, publications, and the Ally Program)
