About Us

New Energy Economy (NEE) was founded in 2004 to build a carbon-free energy future for our health and the environment. 

 

New Energy Economy employs public education, community organizing, targeted litigation methods, and model solar energy projects to shift our energy economy from fossil fuel and nuclear extraction to clean alternatives in pursuit of environmental justice and human and environmental health. New Energy Economy received the 2012 Sustainable Santa Fe Award in Renewable Energy for its Sol Not Coal Project, the Santa Fe Community Foundation's prestigious Visionary Leader Award in 2013, the 2016 City of Santa Fe Energy Advocacy Award, and the 2016 Climate Courage Award from the Climate Change Leadership Institute. New Energy Economy was a keynote on the main stage of the annual Bioneers conference in 2017 and has seen its work covered in news outlets throughout the country .

New Energy Economy is known for our collaborative campaigns that effectively mobilize diverse constituencies, especially Native, Latinx, Low-Income, and young people who are under-represented in energy policy development despite the disproportionate impact of climate destabilization, extractive industry, and rising energy costs have on their lives.

New Energy Economy is an IRS recognized 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. 

New Energy Economy is led by experts in public policy litigation and advocacy, community organizing, and sustainable economic and community development. Learn more about us:
