The goal of Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) is to reduce U.S. oil consumption to address the economic and national security dangers, including environmental implications, caused by the nation’s dependence on petroleum. SAFE is effective in bringing together different voices, particularly business and conservative leaders, in support of clean energy solutions for transport. SAFE’s main focus for the next year will be energy-related national security issues; working with business, military leaders, and consumers to maintain support for fuel economy standards; and electric vehicle policies and incentives, in key states and cities. One of these cities is Columbus — recent winner of the Smart Cities Challenge.

Grants to this Grantee
for a project to reduce America’s dependence on oil and increase the use of electric vehicles
Securing America’s Future Energy Foundation focuses on reducing U.S. dependence on oil. We recommend renewing support for the foundation’s efforts to educate conservative policymakers, business leaders, and opinion leaders about energy issues, policies, and concrete solutions. For example, its electrification initiative in Colorado and Florida?supported by industries, cities, and states?will serve as a pilot for expediting the deployment of electric vehicles in the United States.
for the Oil Campaign
Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) is a policy advocacy organization dedicated to reducing U.S. dependence on oil. With this project grant, SAFE will approach and educate conservative policymakers on energy and fuel by producing and disseminating an updated national strategy on energy security, a report on the impacts of oil on U.S. fiscal stability, and a report on larger impacts of the recent oil boom in the United States.
