The Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC) is a mission-driven nonprofit organization, founded in 1986, that is dedicated to reducing the economic and environmental costs of energy consumption through cost-effective energy efficiency and renewable technologies.
VEIC is a leader in the delivery of energy efficiency and renewable services to residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial customers- including three major publicly held efficiency utilities: Efficiency Vermont, the nation's first energy efficiency utility; Efficiency Smart, providing a full range of energy efficiency services to 49 municipal electric systems and counting; and the DC SEU, administering sustainability services in the nation's capital. VEIC consults nationally and internationally to design programs that reduce energy use through energy efficiency and renewable energy. VEIC develops energy policy and advocates for passage in local, regional, national, and international forums. As of July 2012, the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC) has assumed the programs of the Biomass Energy Resource Center (BERC), building upon the long-lived cooperation and mutual support between the mission-driven, non-profit organizations. This transition will result in an expanded, and growing, set of comprehensive sustainable energy services that encompasses biomass, other renewable energy resources, transportation, and energy efficiency. – less–ZoomInfo
