Energy Alabama is a nonprofit membership-based organization that has advocated for clean energy in Alabama since 2014. Our work is based on two pillars: education and advocacy.
Energy Alabama’s Pillars of Impact
We place four values at the core of every decision we make,
and every issue we engage. They are:
The basic requirement for a successful policy is to recognize divergent views on important issues. Basic values in the policy must include:
- A recognition that reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, both domestic and imported is critical to our national and economic security
- Reliable, plentiful, sustainable, and affordable energy and its effective distribution are vital to the support and growth of all sectors of Alabama’s economy
- Recognizing and providing support for rural based energy solutions. The future energy needs of the state present unique opportunities to diversify the state’s energy supply and technology and provide new opportunities for agriculturally based products and Alabama based clean energy solutions.
- Successful energy strategy requires a collaboration among Alabama stakeholders. The interests of utilities, local power companies, cities, municipalities, landowners, business owners, and others must be recognized. This is the heavy lift for any sustainable policy, but it is work that must be done.
