Founded in Washington DC in 1980, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to advance energy efficiency policies, programs, investments, and behaviors. The ACEEE believes that increasing energy efficiency will result in greater economic prosperity, energy security, and environmental protection for all Americans. It achieves its mission through: 
  • Conducting technical and policy analyses
  • Advising policymakers and program managers
  • Working collaboratively with businesses, government officials, public interest groups, and other organizations
  • Assisting and encouraging traditional and new media to cover energy efficiency policy and technology issues
  • Educating consumers and businesses through reports, books, conference proceedings, press activities, and websites
ACEEE programs focus on energy policy at national, state and local levels; research on industry and buildings, behavior, and economic analysis; and outreach through conferences and publications. 

The ACEEE also maintains an energy efficiency policy database for each state. This resource focuses on six areas of policy and identifies leading states for their work in the energy efficiency sector. This information is useful for people wanting to find out what is available in their state as well as learn about the cutting edge policies in other states.
