EFI Foundation staff

The EFI Foundation is a Washington-based registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public on issues relating to harnessing the power of technology and policy innovation to accelerate the clean energy transition. The EFI Foundation is based in Washington, D.C.

The EFI Foundation adheres to the principle of analytical independence. The content it produces is branded and published on its website. In some instances (co-productions & partnerships), the EFI Foundation’s reports may be co-published on partner websites, in their entirety, and without change.  

Under the leadership of Ernest J. Moniz, the 13th U.S. Secretary of Energy, the EFI Foundation builds on the prior work of the Energy Futures Initiative, a nonprofit organization co-founded by former Secretary Moniz in 2017. Reports by the EFI Foundation and the legacy work of the Energy Futures Initiative are available for download at www.efifoundation.org.
