NECEC leads the just, equitable and rapid transition to a clean energy future and diverse climate economy.

NECEC (Northeast Clean Energy Council & NECEC Institute) is a unique blend of a trade organization and a non-profit, dedicated to leading the just, equitable and rapid transition to a clean energy future and a diverse climate economy. We promote the widespread adoption of clean energy and climate technologies, driven by companies that offer innovative and scalable solutions, with the aim of decarbonizing all aspects of society. Our approach focuses on five key areas: Innovation, Policy, Climate Economy Ecosystem, Workforce Development and Municipal Leadership.

The New England Clean Energy Council was formed in late 2006 when leaders in the Massachusetts’ clean energy industry saw the need for a regional business association to convene clean energy stakeholders dedicated to growing the state and the region’s clean energy economy. In October 2015, reflecting our growing activities in New York State and the rapidly growing community of member companies doing business in New York and across New England, NECEC became the Northeast Clean Energy Council.

NECEC is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We embrace a broad range of perspectives that will make our organization stronger and our work more just. We will continuously look inward at our own culture to make sure we’re reaching our goal of promoting these values. And, as the voice of the Northeast clean energy industry, NECEC will work with our members and community to embed these values across the industry. We are dedicated to securing a just transition to a clean economy, one that corrects the disproportionate impacts of climate change and secures a better future for all. This is the path to a prosperous clean energy future that benefits all communities.
