Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) is actively lobbying US climate change policy with significant positive support. Advanced Energy Economy is a prominent supporter of the Clean Power Plan, advocating to raise the plan's ambition in 2014-15 consultations. AEE has taken legal action to defend the plan and has litigated against attempts to delay the legislation. AEE has also strongly supported California's 2030 GHG emissions target of 40%. AEE supports extensive renewable energy legislation, for example lobbying policymakers to support renewable production and investment tax credits and pro-distributive solar generation policies. Furthermore, AEE has communicated support for multiple state renewable portfolio standards, including in 2016-17 consultation responses on New York’s Clean Energy Standard, of which AEE appears to have played a crucial role in facilitating the Solar Progress Partnership. AEE has consistently supported ambitious federal and state-level energy efficiency standards, for example lobbying policymakers to back both federal and Californian standards. Evidence further suggests AEE supports emission trading, both in California and as part of the Clean Power Plan. Advanced Energy Economy consistently promotes a low-carbon transition, directly advocating to policymakers throughout 2014-16 in consultations to support both a low-carbon energy mix and the expansion of infrastructure to electrify transport.
