Energy and Environment

Center for Best Practices experts work with governors and their staff on developing analysis and insights into emerging policy trends across the fields of energy and environmental protection. We help states promote the efficient use of energy across all sectors, improve the use of traditional and alternative fuels for electricity and transportation, better protect and clean up the environment, and how to effectively manage their natural resources.
