Clean Energy Group
Since 1998, Clean Energy Group, a national nonprofit organization, has worked to expand markets for clean energy technologies, including solar, land-based wind, offshore wind, fuel cells, energy storage, and biomass. In 2002, Clean Energy Group created the Clean Energy States Alliance to help state and municipal clean energy funds work together to deploy projects. In 2013, with support from major foundations and in a joint effort with the Meridian Institute, Clean Energy Group launched the Resilient Power Project.
The Resilient Power Project is designed to help states and municipalities with program and policy information, analysis, finance tools, technical assistance, and best practices to speed the deployment of clean, resilient power systems in their communities. An important focus of the project is to help vulnerable and low-income communities deal with power outages due to severe weather events, as they have suffered disproportionately in damaging storms like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina. The project seeks to reach multi-family housing, assisted living centers, fire stations, schools, and other critical facilities that serve as shelters and can protect people from harm, reduce pollution, and promote community-driven decision making.
