The Energy and Policy Institute is a watchdog organization that exposes attacks on renewable energy and counters misinformation by fossil fuel and utility interests.

We need to power the economy with clean technology to address the climate crisis. Clean, renewable energy is now affordable and cost-competitive with traditional fossil fuels. Energy efficiency and electric vehicles are also growing rapidly.

But fossil fuel interests are fighting to slow down clean energy progress in order to protect their 20th-century business models.

The Energy and Policy Institute exposes attacks and deception by fossil fuel companies, utilities, their trade associations and front groups through investigative research and analysis. By disseminating our information to media, allies, and decision makers, we seek to disrupt fossil fuel-funded misinformation, separate polluters from policymakers, and accelerate the transition to a clean economy.

The Energy and Policy Institute does not receive funding from corporations, trade associations or governments.
