Our Mission

Energy Action Network (EAN) works to achieve Vermont’s climate and energy commitments in ways that create a more just, thriving, and sustainable future.

How We Work

Research and Analysis

Annual Progress Report

Each year, EAN’s Annual Progress Report for Vermont provides an in-depth analysis of where Vermont stands relative to its climate commitments and energy goals.

Other research and reports

EAN is dedicated to producing the highest quality research and analysis on a wide range of issues related to meeting Vermont’s energy and climate commitments.

The Network

EAN is a diverse network of 200+ members, including non-profits, businesses, public agencies, and other organizations. EAN members work together in a collective impact framework and supported by a core staff to further the Network’s mission.

Network Action Teams

Network Action Teams bring together EAN members and public sector partners to collaborate on emerging climate and energy topics. These projects are chosen by the Network based on their potential to help Vermont rapidly, cost-effectively, and equitably reduce fossil fuels and greenhouse gas pollution.
