CRES Forum

Mission Statement

Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) Forum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that educates the public and influences the national conversation around clean energy solutions that are actionable, market-friendly, and responsible. Founded in 2017, our organization provides expert information to key decision makers so they are empowered to act.
We also support annual forums and events, such as National Clean Energy
Week, to demonstrate how clean energy policies strengthen the economy, enhance America’s vital national security interests, and help to preserve our environment for future generations.

What is clean energy?

Clean energy starts with renewable energy-such as wind, solar, hydro, and geothermal sources-but it also includes waste to energy, nuclear, natural gas, and carbon capture technologies. At CRES Forum we believe in a free-market, all-of-the-above approach to energy with the goal of implementing the cleanest, lowest-emitting technologies available.

How We Do It

Policymaker Education: Finding opportunities to educate policy leaders and staff on the array of solutions that could be advanced and moving them to measurable action.
Convening Allies & Influencers: Coordination of like-minded groups and coalition-building to grow influence and awareness around clean energy technologies and policies.
Research & Polling: Providing messaging and issue research from trusted pollsters.
Opportunities in States: Recruiting supporters in target states who understand the benefits of clean energy solutions and can impact future policies and leaders.
Communication & Education: Investing in robust “storytelling,” public education, and digital engagement focusing on the positive impact clean energy has on the economy, national security, and the environment.
