Leaders in Energy

We are a community of leaders working to advance clean energy and sustainable solutions for a more sustainable energy system, economy, and greener world.

With the internet and digital revolution, it has become easier to connect with people in a networked world.   Thus, we are utilizing the power of the networked world for knowledge-sharing that leads to action and impact via collaborative partnerships, projects, jobs, etc. through our educational events, workshops, working groups, and Tech Tours.  We work through our on-line and in person platforms, to connect, educate, and empower individuals on best practices and success stories to build and transfer collective knowledge and action to further enhance sustainable practices in communities.

With operations in Metro Washington DC, we’ve built a base that spans a reach of 6,000 people in many U.S. cities and in over 100 countries through our-in-person and virtual community.   LE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is currently most active in the Metropolitan DC area and is seeking to formalize its virtual network in the future in other regions. We’re non-partisan and welcome all to join our mission.

Our programs have grown organically into 4 focus areas listed below which includes connecting people to help them find green jobs and connect businesses who offer sustainable solutions with those in the market who are seeking green economy solutions.
