Advanced Energy Economy (AEE)
Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) is a national association of businesses that are making the energy we use secure, clean, and affordable. Advanced energy encompasses a broad range of products and services that constitute the best available technologies for meeting energy needs today and tomorrow. AEE’s mission is to transform public policy to enable rapid growth of advanced energy businesses. Engaged at the federal level and in more than a dozen states around the country, AEE represents more than 100 companies in the $238 billion U.S. advanced energy industry, which employs 3.5 million U.S. workers. Learn more at www.aee.net and follow the latest industry news @AEEnet.
Advanced Energy Now 2019 Market Report: This report outlines the global and U.S. market revenue 2011-18 and key trends in advanced energy growth including a $238 billion industry in the United States that supports 3.5 million jobs.
On March 20, 2019, AEE released a fact sheet showing that the advanced energy industry employed 3.5 million U.S. workers in 2018, an increase of 125,000 jobs over 2017. Advanced energy employment grew 4% year-over-year, more than twice as fast as the overall 2018 U.S. employment growth rate of 1.5%. Employers expect to add 6% more advanced energy jobs in the coming year, also at a faster pace than overall employment growth.
AEE also manages the Advanced Energy Buyers Group. We just released this report, Renewable Energy Offerings That Work For Companies. This report from the Advanced Energy Buyers Group, a business-led coalition of large energy users facilitated by Advanced Energy Economy, explains how states with vertically integrated electricity markets can unlock the many benefits of corporate renewable energy procurement.

American Petroleum Institute (API)
Analysis: Energy for a Cleaner Environment
Energy is fundamental to the lives we want to live – free, safe and healthy, with broad opportunity. Delivering the natural gas and oil that powers and supports modern living means doing so with lower emissions and improved products and operations. In all of these, industry is helping lead the way.
Cleaner operations, facilities and products – all are part of the natural gas and oil industry’s commitment to improve its environmental performance and accelerate society’s climate goals while producing the energy required by a modern economy. Developing natural gas and oil is an industrial process, yet its impacts can be managed using advanced technologies to protect the environment, our workers and the communities that host our operations. For example, industry is highly motivated to use a variety of technologies to capture more and more methane during production that can be delivered to consumers as natural gas. Increased use of natural gas to fuel power generation is the No. 1 reason U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide have fallen to levels not seen in more than two decades. Learn more at https://www.api.org/.
