Fueling the future with clean energy is essential to addressing the climate imperative and ensuring that all people can enjoy the benefits of healthier air, cleaner water, and a secure future on a thriving planet.

Signature Work

Around the country and around the world, clean energy continues to gain momentum, and a shift away from fossil fuels is underway. But transformational change won’t come fast enough without key policy reforms and a concerted fight against industry interests that profit from business as usual. Using the power of the law and the strength of partnership, we’re working around the country to accelerate the transition to 100% clean energy.

Working alongside our partners and on behalf of our clients, we are spurring clean energy progress across the country:

  • Clearing regulatory hurdles and securing utility investment in renewable generation, energy efficiency, and other clean energy alternatives to fossil fuels;
  • Broadening access to clean energy programs to ensure that all communities and electricity customers can benefit from lower bills, cleaner air and water, new jobs, and healthier, more comfortable living, learning, and work spaces;
  • Defending against industry attacks on rooftop solar and other clean energy policies and programs that promote distributed energy solutions;
  • Advancing reforms that are essential to shifting business models so that we can power our grid with 100% clean electricity.
