There is a wide variety of non-profit organizations and trade groups that are involved in the field of energy. Typically these organizations support a particular energy industry, e.g., the solar power industry. However, there are broader organizations for which energy is only a sub-category, e.g., the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), which supports science teachers in general, as well as more narrowly focused organizations that support a segment of an energy industry, e.g., the Women in Solar Energy (WISE).
The organizations presented in these pages play a critical role in advancing the field of energy. For someone looking to learn about a particular area, they are an ideal source for further, more detailed information.
