About the AEA

Founded in May, 2008, The American Energy Alliance (AEA) is a not-for-profit organization that engages in grassroots public policy advocacy and debate concerning energy and environmental policies.

AEA’s legislative and public policy advocacy take place at both the state and national level.  It is the aim of AEA to educate and mobilize citizens in understanding, promoting and helping to solve America’s most pressing energy and environmental policy problems. Through a deeper understanding of these issues, our nation’s citizens will be able to better participate in the policy-making process at the state and national level.

AEA has no ties to any political party, and it has no interest in supporting the agenda of any particular political party.  AEA is an issue organization that supports affordable, abundant and reliable energy for America’s consumers and businesses.

AEA is the advocacy arm of the Institute for Energy Research (IER), a not-for-profit organization – founded in 1989 – that conducts intensive research and analysis on the functions, operations, and government regulation of global energy markets.
