Friends of FESI

DOE’s new foundation offers government, philanthropy, and industry the chance to partner on clean energy commercialization and deployment projects that move us closer to a net-zero future.

The Department of Energy’s Foundation for Energy Security and Innovation (FESI) was authorized in the CHIPS and Science Act and is in the process of being formally established. To help jumpstart FESI, the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) and the Center for Clean Energy Innovation at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) are developing and seeking projects and activities that the foundation could take on that would advance the DOE mission through collaboration with private sector and philanthropic partners. Key objectives include transitioning to clean energy, meeting critical national science and technology needs, strengthening energy security, and addressing economic development and energy efficiency needs in underserved and low-income communities across the U.S.
