Areas Of Focus

Acadia Center is pursuing reforms in four key areas that will work simultaneously to drive a profound and much-needed transformation in the energy sector.

Advance Long-Term Climate Policy

We analyze reliable data to chart long-term pathways that address climate change.

Buildings and Transportation

A cleaner, more consumer-friendly economy will require replacing fossil fuel use in buildings and transportation with clean, modern, and electric choices.

Transition to Clean Energy Sources

We focus on the power generation sector - essential to supplying the clean electricity our homes and transportation will need.

Changing the Climate Conversation

We widen the solutions circle to move us all forward toward a clean energy economy.

The Northeast and Beyond

Coordinating across the states and sectors.

Multistate Cooperation

At its core, Acadia Center is a regional organization – one that develops deep local relationships in the states where we work, while maintaining an overarching regional perspective.

State & Community Solutions

At a time when the federal government has abdicated action on climate, the power of regions, states and communities to lead is more important than ever.

How We Work

We believe that we are most effective when we work at both a state and regional level. In our state work we are embedded in local advocacy and politics, and many of our state leads have lived and worked their whole careers in the state they represent.

Projects

Acadia Center participates in multi-state efforts such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and the Transportation Climate Initiative (TCI) to transition our region into the clean energy future.
