SPN’s objective is to ensure that energy is reliable, secure, and affordable for all Americans.
Across the country, people are struggling with rising energy costs and concerns over what states will do when disasters strike our vital energy sources. Leadership from the states will ensure that everyone has reliable, secure, affordable energy, that is as clean as possible.
Visiting Energy Policy Fellow
We gather the leading state think tank experts, key partners, and SPN fellows to analyze the trends, opportunities, and challenges within the areas of healthcare, energy, education, and fiscal policy. These working groups help state think tanks connect with peers across the country, share policy ideas, and hear about best practices.
Amy O. Cooke is SPN’s visiting Energy Policy Fellow. In this role she serves state think tanks by overseeing the Energy Policy Working Group, advising state think tanks on energy policy ideas, and connecting state think tanks to energy policy experts across the country.
Generous donors seeking to invest in policy reforms in the states contribute to SPN’s State Solutions Grant Funds. These funds support state think tank issue campaigns that pursue opportunities identified in the policy working group. Invitation to issue campaign grants is determined by available funds and donor intent.
Participation in the working group is voluntary. Invitation to the working group is determined by the policy priorities SPN members indicate in the Membership Renewal Survey and SPN staff capacity constraints. We continue to expand our working group capacity to incorporate more members.
