History & Achievements

“Steve Cowell and Pat Stanton are two of the finest, most intelligent energy and environmental minds that I know. They are a national resource.”

E4TheFuture also has a past. We are a continuing nonprofit endowed from Conservation Services Group including its CEO/co-founder Steve Cowell. CSG’s operating programs were acquired by CLEAResult in 2015. The sale capped CSG’s 30+ pioneering years delivering energy services, focused primarily on efficiency program development and implementation in the residential sector.

CSG effectively advocated for common-sense policy and played a key role in developing renewable energy markets. E4TheFuture is continuing this policy work and expanding its focus.
