 About Us


Sustainable Energy Top Ten Awards (SETT)
In early 2002 SEI announced the Sustainable Energy Top Ten 2001 awards, granted to individuals in government, industry and NGOs who have made particular contributions to sustainable energy policies and practices in the United States. In conjunction with these awards, SEI published a report providing in-depth interviews with these ten leaders in the field on a range of sustainable energy issues. Through these interviews and a subsequent Capitol Hill roundtable, held in February 2002, this project brought together leaders from diverse constituencies -- such as Senator John McCain, Exelon Chairman John Rowe, and Toyota’s Prius designer Takahisha Yaegashi – thus providing a constructive dialogue on ways to promote a sustainable energy agenda.

Sustainable Energy Roundtable Series (SERS)
This series provides attendees the opportunity to exchange views with a select group of decision-makers and opinion-leaders on key energy policy topics. SEI held roundtables on greenhouse gas emissions policies, allowance allocation methods for multi-pollutant emmissions, hydrogen fuel cell development, nuclear energy options, sustainable energy and national security, the 2004 Presidential candidates' energy policy proposals, the implications of the 2005 energy budget and the 2005 energy bill's tax incentives for sustainable energy, and the implications of the emerging patchwork of state GHG regulations.

Forums/Panel Discussions
SEI held a forum on November 21, 2003 with the top energy advisors to the Democratic Presidential candidates. This was the first in a series of two forums, the second of which was held on June 24, 2004 featuring David Garman, Acting Under Secretary of Energy, in representation of the Bush Administration, and David Hayes, former Deputy Secretary of the Interior and Energy and Environmental Advisor to Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry.
