Working at Secure America’s Future Energy (SAFE)
Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) is a not-for-profit advocacy organization founded in 2004 and employs 25 people and multiple consultants. It unites prominent military and business leaders to develop and advocate for policies that improve America’s energy security by significantly curtailing our dependence on oil and promoting responsible use of our domestic energy resources. SAFE relies on the knowledge and experience of four-star retired military officers, Fortune 500 CEOs, and its expert staff to produce high-quality, fact based analysis and policy recommendations for lawmakers, regulatory agencies, and the public.
In 2018, GuideStar awarded the organization a bronze Seal of Transparency, showing SAFE’s commitment to transparency.
SAFE provides fact-based analysis of energy policy, markets, and trends through a combination of original research, high-profile public events, traditional and social media outlets, and public advocacy. The organization’s policy platform is truly non-partisan and encourages members of both major political parties to set aside long-held orthodoxies for the good of the country.
SAFE made its public debut in 2005 with Oil ShockWave, a fast-paced and realistic war game exercise led by former U.S. cabinet members. It then formed partnerships with some of the country’s leading corporate executives and retired military officials to develop innovative methods to educate, communicate and advocate for policy solutions to America’s evolving energy issues.
In 2009, SAFE launched the Electrification Coalition, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group of business executives representing the entire value chain of a proposed electrified transportation system, from automakers to utilities, to promote the deployment of electric vehicles on a mass scale.
After more than a decade of building relationships and expertise through a non-partisan approach, SAFE is well-positioned to work with the Trump administration and Congress towards the organization’s goal of reduced dependence on oil in the transportation sector.
There are three bipartisan leadership councils built around our mission: The Energy Security Leadership Council (ESLC), the Diplomatic Council on Energy Security and the Commission on Energy and Politics. The ESLC brings together some of America’s most prominent business and military leaders to support a comprehensive, long-term policy to reduce U.S. oil dependence and improve energy security. The ESLC works aggressively to build bipartisan support.
The Diplomatic Council on Energy Security is a bipartisan coalition of former U.S. ambassadors who have come together to speak to the diplomatic and foreign policy constraints and dangers created by the nation’s needs and oil dependence. Members of the group act as expert spokespeople and supporters, educating the public, meeting with policymakers, testifying before Congress, and more. Most importantly, they are adding their prominent voices and significant bipartisan credibility to a crucial national debate.
The Commission on Energy and Geopolitics is a bipartisan group of former high-ranking military and government officials dedicated to enhancing U.S. national security in an era of rapidly evolving energy markets. The Commission combines sophisticated energy market analysis with decades of experience formulating U.S. foreign and military policy around the globe in order to develop clear, actionable policy recommendations for furthering American interests.
SAFE & Bipartisan Government Policy
SAFE’s policy proposals have been embraced by the leaders of both major political parties. In his 2013 State of the Union Address, President Obama outlined his plan to implement one of SAFE’s policy recommendations, the establishment of an Energy Security Trust, and credited the organization with coming up with the idea. In 2007, President George W. Bush used the State of the Union Address to propose a plan closely mirroring a SAFE proposal, which ultimately led to the first improvement in automotive fuel-economy standards in a generation.
SAFE Policy Initiatives
Initiatives that SAFE is undertaking to strengthen U.S. energy security and reduce the country’s dependence on oil include:
Due to its focus on national and economic security, SAFE has a unique ability to engage conservative thought leaders and lawmakers on energy policy. Through targeted research, impactful public events, and the mobilization of trusted advocates, the organization is working to frame energy security policy in a way that brings conservatives to the table.
Implementation of Electric Vehicle Deployment Community Projects
SAFE and the Electrification Coalition have launched two major projects to support the deployment of electric vehicles in strategically chosen communities to demonstrate that significant adoption of electric vehicles is possible in an environment in which regulatory policy, education, infrastructure, and other services come together in an integrated way. The current projects are Drive Electric Northern Colorado (DENC) and Drive Electric Orlando (DEO). SAFE and the EC have also initiated partnerships with some of the nation’s largest corporations to advance adoption of electric vehicles in commercial fleets.
Policy Research, Analysis and a Legislative Agenda
Despite political challenges, it is imperative to continue to push for comprehensive energy policy legislation. Political gridlock in Washington will continue to be an obstacle to substantive reforms. However, SAFE’s national and economic security credentials make it uniquely positioned to be the leading voice influencing energy policy, and it is imperative to lay the groundwork now to be ready for when the political environment is ripe. SAFE is also planning to create several policy initiatives in a number of states.
