EnergyFactCheck.org is a resource for journalists, policymakers and others engaged in the debate over clean and renewable energy. Its purpose is to educate, inform and share perspectives in real time. EnergyFactCheck.org is designed to help ensure both sides of the story are told by responding to inaccuracies and misrepresentations with the facts on an industry that is popular, productive, growing and essential to America’s economy, energy independence and national security.

EnergyFactCheck.org is a resource of the American Council On Renewable Energy, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to building a secure and prosperous America with clean, renewable energy.


ACORE, a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization, is dedicated to building a secure and prosperous America with clean, renewable energy. ACORE provides a common educational platform for a wide range of interests in the renewable energy community, focusing on technology, finance and policy. We convene thought leadership forums and create energy industry partnerships to communicate the economic, security and environmental benefits of renewable energy.

The scope of ACORE’s membership spans all constituencies in the renewable energy sector, including financial institutions, government leaders, educators, end-users, professional service providers and allied non-profit groups.

ACORE accomplishes much of its work by convening the thought leaders in each of these constituencies, publishing collaborative research and facilitating communications among our members, their stakeholders and the media.
