Issues & Policy
Carbon-Free Technology Initiative (CFTI)
EEI has joined with a number of environmental and technology-focused non-governmental organizations to launch the Carbon-Free Technology Initiative (CFTI), which is focused on implementation of federal policies that can help ensure the commercial availability of affordable, carbon-free, 24/7 power technology options by the early 2030s.
Many of the CFTI's policy recommendations address research and development, demonstration, deployment, and issues that have an impact on the cost or performance of a technology, such as siting and permitting. They outline the need for appropriations, authorizations, and tax and finance policies to advance these technologies.
Institute for the Energy Transition
Electric companies are leading a clean energy transition and are committed to getting the energy they provide as clean as they can as fast as they can, while keeping customer reliability and affordability front and center.
To achieve this goal, new clean energy technologies will be needed. The Edison Foundation Board launched IET in 2023 to ensure that industry leaders, regulators, policymakers, and other stakeholders, including the public, have up-to-date information about the development of these technologies, as well as the barriers to their deployment. Clean energy technologies that IET is focused on include advanced renewables and nuclear energy, clean fuels like hydrogen and ammonia, advanced and long-duration energy storage, and carbon capture and storage.Visit IET.org
