Our Goals

The Clean Energy Program is working to accelerate the clean energy economy for its national security, economic and environmental benefits. The Program promotes the adoption of key changes to U.S. energy policy in four sectors: industry, utilities, transportation and research.

Specifically, Pew will build support for:

  • Increasing fuel economy and encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles.
  • Ensuring that the U.S. electric and industrial sectors are cleaner and more efficient.
  • Fostering U.S. innovation through expanded energy research and development.
