What is BEN?

We’re glad you asked.

BEN was founded

by people who care about American freedom and prosperity. In today’s world, these great benefits heavily depend on access to affordable, abundant and reliable energy for everyone. Without enough energy our society quite literally crumbles. And yet today many people needlessly live under the burden of high energy costs.

Young People Today

are misinformed about energy production and consumption. The truth is often obscured by politics and false narratives. As a result, our younger generation is feeling more despair and less hope for the future.

We want our young people to know that there’s good reason for optimism. There is no reason to fear for our energy future. In America we have the answer right here under feet.

And that’s why

we’re working to educate young people on the realities of energy production so they can separate fact from fiction and make smart choices. We promote this education freely through social media, online libraries, live events and partnerships with national student organizations.

We need more young people to represent BEN across the country.

Throughout the year we have many opportunities to appear at events, in the media and on the social platforms of our friends and collaborators.

If you’re a student in high school or college and you believe that energy literacy is important to the future of our society, then we can put you on the playing field.

Almost every day someone tells us they love what we’re doing and that our society today desperately needs just such an initiative.

If you agree then consider being a BENefactor. We welcome all contributions big or small. All funds go directly to BEN operations to help us reach more young people.

Blue Energy Nation is a federally registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Feel free to contact us for more details.

Meet our Board of Advisors

We decided that young people are the best ones to advise us on how to reach young people. So we recruited this group of smart, motivated students to help us chart the course.
