Who We Are
Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) is a national association of businesses that are making the energy we use secure, clean, and affordable. Advanced energy encompasses a broad range of products and services that constitute the best available technologies for meeting energy needs today and tomorrow. These include energy efficiency, demand response, energy storage, solar, wind, hydro, nuclear, electric vehicles, biofuels and smart grid. AEE represents more than 100 companies in the $238 billion U.S. advanced energy industry, which employs 3.6 million U.S. workers.
What We Do
AEE’s mission is transforming public policy to enable rapid growth of advanced energy businesses. We educate, engage, and advocate at the federal level, in wholesale electricity markets, and more than a dozen states for executive actions, legislation, and regulations that expand the size and value of markets for advanced energy products and services. We also offer business intelligence products and select business development opportunities to help advanced energy companies grow.
AEE is the only industry association in the U.S. that represents the full range of advanced energy technologies and services, both grid-scale and distributed. AEE’s unique systems approach offers policymakers a path to meeting ambitious policy goals such as 100% clean power and transportation electrification. AEE member companies participate in an annual survey and “options investing” exercise to concentrate our resources on the best opportunities to expand markets and increase equity value for businesses in our industry. With focus as our unfair competitive advantage, AEE aims to win.
