Energy Futures Initiative

Our Mission 

The Energy Futures Initiative advances solutions to the climate crisis through building coalitions, thought leadership, and science-based analysis.

In keeping with our principle of analytical independence, EFI-produced content is branded and published on this website. In some instances (co-productions & partnerships), our reports may be co-published on partner websites, in their entirety and without change.

Recent partners include the Bipartisan Policy Center, ClimateWorks, IHSMarkit, Breakthrough Energy, and the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO). Led by principals with decades of experience and proven track records in government, academia and the private sector, EFI conducts objective, fact-based and rigorous analysis supported by a multidisciplinary network of experts. 

How We Work

We focus on solutions that are effective, pragmatic and acceptable to the broadest possible set of stakeholders. The EFI team and its global network of experts understand current energy markets, trends and needs, and will apply this collective talent and knowledge to a range of policy questions, including:

  • Analyzing complex energy systems, providing public and private decision-makers with strategic insights and integrated policy solutions and politically viable implementation pathways.

  • Advancing synergistic clean energy technologies and policies at home and around the world.

  • Convening industry, labor, policymakers, philanthropists and NGOs to forge practical implementable climate change solutions.

  • Promoting strong communities and a 21st century energy workforce, with a focus on city, state and regional innovation opportunities.

  • Engaging global experts to advance broad and collective energy security goals and objectives.

Our Structure

EFI is a core group of principals and analysts, supplemented by a cadre of Distinguished Associates, who are brought together as teams on a project basis. Our Distinguished Associates bring considerable expertise in various project domains and experience in analysis, research, policy and business.

In addition, EFI is guided by an international Advisory Board, whch convenes at least once a year to brainstorm on the most important areas in which EFI can contribute. The Advisors may also participate directly in projects of specific interest.

The Energy Futures Initiative, Inc. is a nonprofit organization operating under the District of Columbia Nonprofit Corporation Act.
