About the Blog
The purpose of the New England Clean Energy Council’s blog is simple: to take what we’re already doing and bring it online. We want to make it easier for our community to have conversations, to highlight the challenges our sector faces, to celebrate its success stories, and, yes, occasionally to brag on New England’s clean energy leadership. And we want to help communicate to those outside our community the crucial importance of clean energy. We’re going to keep doing what we’ve been doing; we’re just turning up the volume.
About the New England Clean Energy Council
The New England Clean Energy Council’s mission is to accelerate New England’s clean energy economy to global leadership by building an active community of stakeholders and a world-class cluster of clean energy companies.
The Clean Energy Council represents close to 200 member organizations, including clean energy companies, venture investors, major financial institutions, universities, industry associations, utilities, labor and large commercial end-users. The Clean Energy Council’s ranks now include clean energy CEOs, representatives from most of the region’s top 10 law firms, and partners from most of the top New England venture capital firms (with a total of over $8 billion under management). Working with its stakeholders, the Clean Energy Council develops and executes a wide array of programs in five key focus areas: Innovation, Growth, Education & Workforce, Adoption, Policy & Advocacy, and Research.
The Clean Energy Council believes that our future depends upon a foundation of sound regional, national, and global energy policy that encourages clean energy innovation and technology commercialization. With such a foundation in place, it is the Clean Energy Council’s goal to help the New England region, with its considerable innovation assets, leverage the power of free markets to become a leading provider of clean energy solutions to the global marketplace. The Clean Energy Council firmly believes that this emerging sector can and will become a powerful economic engine for New England, capable of generating tens of thousands of new jobs in the coming decade and beyond.
