Education and Advocacy

There is no state in the nation better positioned to shape its future, including on issues related to how we use and generate energy. In partnership with organizations, businesses, communities, members and concerned citizens, VNRC works to help Vermonters chart a sustainable, clean energy future by raising awareness and motivating meaningful action on energy solutions that:

  • Grow Vermont’s economy.
  • Protect our environment.
  • Combat climate change.

We undertake exhaustive research and analysis and develop, promote and help implement bold, workable clean energy solutions. From digging in at the local level with committed Vermonters to helping to shape state-level policy, our work takes us from the grassroots to the Legislature.

With more Vermonters focused on developing efficient, renewable, homegrown energy solutions, Vermont can turn the state’s energy challenges into opportunity. Find out how you can get involved — including how you can start or join a community energy committee — by contacting VNRC’s Energy Program Director Johanna Miller at or 802-223-2328 ext. 112.
