Energy Vision

Mission:

Founded by Bryn Mawr alumna Joanna Underwood, Energy Vision is a New York-based national nonprofit organization that seeks to “analyze and promote ways to make a swift transition to pollution-free renewable energy sources and to the clean, petroleum-free transportation fuels of the future.” The organization’s strategy is to educate the government, businesses, students, and other citizens about the environmental and economic risks of our current dependency on fossil fuels and to analyze and create awareness regarding cleaner, more sustainable alternatives, such as hydrogen-based fuels. Among Energy Vision’s top priorities is weaning the 10 million buses and trucks on U.S. roadways off of polluting diesel fuel.

Services/Programs Provided:

Energy Vision uses media and the internet to generate visibility for pathways to sustainability by targeting areas with dense populations and high levels of vehicle-related air pollution, organizing workshops and giving demonstrations of natural gas-fueled refuse trucks to communities, and linking communities to companies that can help them plan fuel-switching initiatives.
