Energy Vision is advancing commercial and cost-effective solutions for a carbon-neutral economy through research, education and advisory.

Our Energy Vision is the rapid transition of the global economy's dependence on fossil fuels to the clean, renewable, low- and no-carbon sources necessary for a sustainable future. Our current primary focus is preventing methane emissions from decaying food and farm waste. This short-lived greenhouse gas is 86 times more powerful than carbon dioxide in its global warming potential over a twenty year time horizon.

Our Impact

Energy Vision is the leading independent (501c3) resource on the technology, policy and economic elements associated with the production and use of biomethane (also called renewable natural gas or RNG). Our workshops, education/outreach and advisory work have inspired significant tangible progress in the shift toward a sustainable energy future.

Joanna D. Underwood

Founder & Senior Advisor

Joanna D. Underwood

Founder & Senior Advisor

Joanna Underwood has been a leading figure in the US environmental movement since the early 1970s. From 1970 to 1973, Ms. Underwood was co-director of the Council on Economic Priorities, the first organization in the US to evaluate the environmental practices of businesses for investors. While there, she co-authored Paper Profits, a 700-page study of air and water pollution in the pulp and paper industry. The report, published by MIT Press, was the first to compare corporate pollution control programs in use of the best available technology. It producing front page headlines coast to coast and set a standard for environmental reporting.

Ms. Underwood founded INFORM in 1974 for expanded analysis of environmental business practices aimed primarily at identifying solutions – especially ways to prevent waste, contamination and the destruction of natural resources at the source. Under her guidance, INFORM became a prime force in educating decision-makers in the public and private sectors about the need for preventive approaches to some of this country’s most complex environmental problems.

INFORM’s research, over a period of three decades, was published in almost 100 reports. These covered fields ranging from energy, strip mining, electric utility, chemical industry, worker safety and health, and renewable resource use, to land development, agricultural water conservation and transportation. The policy and program recommendations emerging from its research have had a broad impact on US laws and corporate practices. Examples include the following:

INFORM’s decade of research of the chemical industry pioneered in documenting the significant economic and environmental benefits that could be gained by focusing on “pollution prevention” rather than on “pollution management.“ This research inspired introduction and passage of the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990, the country’s first prevention-focused law. Similar laws were subsequently adopted in more than 3 dozen states. INFORM’s chemical industry research also produced a proposal for a new national system for compiling and making available to the general public data on industrial toxic chemical uses and wastes (on a chemical-specific basis.) This proposal was codified into law in l986 as the US Toxics Release Inventory. It set the model for data collection and for chemical industry performance evaluations around the world. INFORM earned for this work the US Environmental Protection Agency’s prestigious Administrator’s Award for its national pollution prevention leadership.

INFORM’s research also played a pioneering role in identifying strategies for reducing municipal solid wastes at their source. In its landmark study, Germany Garbage and the Green Dot, it introduced into the US the policy approach of “extended producer responsibility” (holding manufacturers of products responsible for their waste when they reach their end of life.) The principle of “EPR” is now widely applied to business practices.

INFORM’s 12 reports in the field of sustainable transportation, exploring the fuels and advanced vehicles of the future, first highlighted the potential role of natural gas as a vehicle fuel in its l989 report, Drive for Clean Air. In l995, it published Harnessing Hydrogen, the first clear public analysis of hydrogen fuel cell technology as perhaps the ultimate form of sustainable transportation. These reports have been used by policymakers and industry leaders worldwide

Ms. Underwood stepped aside as president of INFORM in 2006 to found a new organization, Energy Vision, focused entirely on the challenge of sustainable transportation.

Ms Underwood has written and lectured widely on energy and environmental issues. She has served on many Boards and Government Advisory Bodies, including: Advisory Committees of the US Department of Energy on renewable sources and Task Forces of the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, as a member of the Eco-efficiency Task Force of the President’s Council on Sustainable Development under the Clinton Administration (1994-5); a Director of the Rocky Mountain Institute (1994-2000); a Member of the Dow Chemical Company’s Environmental Advisory Council, (1991-2001); a Trustee of The Keystone Center (1996-2001), and a Board member of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (1980-1998).

She served on the Board of Directors of the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation in Washington DC, and of the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation in New York City.

A graduate of Bryn Mawr College, Ms. Underwood has taught at New York and Adelphi Universities and in 2007-8 guided a first-of-a-kind field practice environmental leadership course at Bryn Mawr College. In 1999 she received an honorary doctor of science degree from Wheaton College. In 1997 and 2000 she was chosen by Earth Times as one of the world’s 100 most influential environmental leaders. (A list of Awards and Honors follows.) She is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women.

Joanna D. Underwood

Founder

Energy Vision

Joanna Underwood, the founder of Energy Vision, launched the organization in 2007 and served as President until 2016. Its goal has been to identify and promote the clean, renewable and carbon-free energy technologies and fuel sources needed for a sustainable future.

From l974 through 2006, she was founder and President of INFORM, a national non-profit organization studying a variety of corporate and technology-related environmental issues, and focused on strategies to prevent these at their source. In the transportation sector, INFORM explored alternatives to petroleum-based vehicle fuel. Its studies pioneered in highlighting the potential of natural gas fuel as a vehicle fuel (Drive for Clean Air - l989) and homed in on its value for heavy-duty fleets: (Bus Futures-2000) and (Greening Garbage Trucks-2003). These reports, related workshops, and media helped drive the expanding use of natural gas buses and trucks.

Energy Vision’s early outreach inspired the first major refuse fleet conversion (2007) in the Eastern U.S (Smithtown, NY). A 2013 EV report, Tomorrow’s Trucks: Leaving the Era of Oil Behind, documents the ten-fold expansion in NG fleets in the NY, Long Island and New Jersey region since then. EV’s research since 2010 has also made this organization a leading educator regarding the sustainable form of natural gas, Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). EV participated in planning the Department of Energy’s first national workshop (2010) introducing the DOE’s Clean Cities affiliates to RNG, and it has published several reports on RNG since then. EV released Turning Wastes into Vehicle Fuel: A Step by Step Guide for Communities in 2013 and launched a series of regional workshops with Clean Cities affiliates to introduce this strategy.

A graduate of Bryn Mawr College, Ms. Underwood, in l999, received an honorary doctor of science degree from Wheaton College.She has spoken on alternative fuels topics at many national business, government, and university conferences, and has served on advisory boards for the US Department of Energy and the Clinton Administration’s President’s Council on Sustainable Development. She served on the Board on the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority from l979 to 1999. Ms. Underwood has received numerous awards, including three from the US Environmental Protection Agency. She was chosen by The Earth Times as one of the world's 100 most influential voices in the global environmental movement.
