Established in 2003, the Energy and Environmental Security Initiative (EESI)
is an interdisciplinary Research & Policy Institute
located at the University of Colorado Law School
. The fundamental mission of EESI is to serve as an interdisciplinary research and policy center concerning the development and crafting of State policies, U.S. energy policies
, and global responses to the world's energy crisis; and to facilitate the attainment of a global sustainable energy
future through the innovative use of laws, policies and technology solutions. In pursuit of this mission, EESI's primary operational function is that of an enabling environment for teaching, research and policy analysis vis-à-vis the impact of laws and policies on the scientific, technological, sociopolitical, commercial, and environmental dimensions of sustainable energy.
