The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) is a member-based, non-profit organization, founded in 2001 to bring together leading proponents and innovators from all facets of the renewable energy sector for the purpose of moving renewable energy into the mainstream of America's economy.
Established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, ACORE does not lobby at the federal or state level. Instead, ACORE’s focus is to disseminate factual information about current renewable energy policy, market trends, and the numerous benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency, without bias for specific technologies, to its members and the general public. In addition, ACORE convenes forums throughout the year on various topics in renewable energy to bring together leaders from its own membership base and from the wider network of professionals involved in the sector to collaborate on solutions to the industry’s challenges.
As of January 2013, ACORE has over 400 member organizations from across the wide range of interests in the community, including renewable energy industries, associations, utilities, end users, professional service firms, financial institutions and government agencies. In 2011, retired Vice Admiral Dennis V. McGinn was named President and CEO of ACORE. Under McGinn’s leadership, ACORE’s mission was updated to reflect the successes of the industry during ACORE’s first decade. The new mission statement became:
Building a secure and prosperous America with clean, renewable energy.

“Daughter to that good Earl, once President
Of Englands Council and her Treasury,
Who lived in both, unstaind with gold or fee,
And left them both, more in himself content.
Till the sad breaking of that Parliament
Broke him, as that dishonest victory
At Chaeronea, fatal to liberty,
Killd with report that old man eloquent;”
—John Milton (16081674)
