Mission & Vision

Our Mission

To accelerate an equitable and inclusive transition to a resilient, sustainable, clean energy future.

Our Vision

A clean energy system that strengthens all communities by providing sustainable and affordable power, establishing transparent and inclusive decision-making processes, and building wealth and resilience through equitable access to and ownership of energy technologies that do not harm the health and well-being of individuals, communities, or the global community.

Our Work

Clean Energy Group (CEG), a national nonprofit organization, works at the forefront of clean energy innovation to enable a just energy transition to address the urgency of the climate crisis.

CEG fills a critical resource gap by advancing new energy initiatives and serving as a trusted source of technical expertise and independent analysis in support of communities, nonprofit advocates, and government leaders working on the frontlines of climate change and the clean energy transition. CEG collaborates with partners across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to accelerate the equitable deployment of clean energy technologies and the development of inclusive clean energy programs, policies, and finance tools.

Founded in 1998, CEG has been a thought leader on effective climate and clean energy strategies for more than two decades. CEG specializes in providing resources and assistance related to emerging technology trends and transformative policy, regulatory, and market approaches. To learn more about CEG’s work, please see our Focus Areas and Initiatives.

CEG manages and staffs the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA), a leading nonprofit coalition of state energy organizations working together to advance the rapid expansion of clean energy technologies and bring the benefits of clean energy to all.

Guiding Principles

The work that we do is framed by four basic guiding principles:

  1. Access to clean, reliable, and affordable energy is a basic human right.
  2. No community should be disproportionately burdened by negative health, economic, and environmental impacts resulting from practices related to the extraction, production, and consumption of energy.
  3. The transition from fossil fuels to an energy system based on clean, renewable generation must include and prioritize frontline and environmental justice communities, providing opportunities for economic advancement and equitable participation in energy decision-making processes.
  4. Inclusive, collaborative, and equitable solutions are necessary to ensure a just transition to a sustainable clean energy future.
