The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to advancing energy efficiency as a means of promoting economic prosperity, energy security, and environmental protection. ACEEE carries out its mission by:
  • Conducting in-depth technical and policy analyses

ACEEE was founded in 1980 by leading researchers in the energy field. Since then we have grown to a staff of more than 35. Projects are carried out by ACEEE staff and collaborators from government, the private sector, research institutions, and other nonprofit organizations. ACEEE's program areas include:
  • Energy Policy (primarily federal and state)
  • Research (including programs on Buildings and Equipment, Utilities, Industry, Agriculture, Transportation, Economic and Social Analysis, Behavior and Human Dimensions, and International)
  • Communications (including Conferences, Publications, and Development, including our Ally Program)
In our nearly 30 years, we have accomplished a great deal. This record of accomplishment has helped establish ACEEE as America’s leading center of expertise on energy efficiency with a reputation for quality, credibility, the applicability of our work, and our bipartisan approach. ACEEE’s technical work is widely relied upon by policymakers, business and industry decision-makers, consumers, the media, and other energy professionals.
