NEF History

The National Energy Foundation (NEF) is a unique 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to the
development, dissemination and implementation of supplementary educational materials and programs. NEF
resources for education relate primarily to energy, water, natural resources, science, math, technology, conservation,
energy efficiency and the environment. NEF recognizes the importance and contribution of natural resources to our
economy, to our national security, the environment and our quality of life.

NEF is devoted to the implementation of innovative educational opportunities. For over four decades, energy professionals and educators have depended on NEF for experience and expertise in energy literacy. Energy education in schools is an effective way to deliver important messages to students, families and communities on a local or national level. NEF programs help organizations meet energy safety requirements, reach significant measured savings and produce meaningful customer experiences.
