We help people who use energy
remove carbon from the electric grid

Carbon heats the planet. Pollution harms our health.
Fossil fuels threaten everyone’s future. It’s just not right.

CCE helped create the second carbon-neutral city in the US

Communities can learn to take control of their energy using three levers

Production

Wind and solar energy
installations can power
communities for less than
conventional fossil fuels

Procurement

In the last few years, standard
purchase agreements make
obtaining renewable power a
straightforward activity

Storage

Advances in energy storage
make renewables available
even when the sun isn’t
shining or the wind blowing.

An energy revolution with tangible benefits for citizens

 

For more than 100 years, electricity was delivered in a one-way flow from large coal or gas powered generators to consumers. Utility monopolies granted by the government were the best means of managing such a carbon intensive system.

Now, synergies bring together renewable generation, batteries, electric cars, and control systems. This energy revolution allows community leaders to manage their local production and distribution, achieving tangible benefits for citizens.

• Cleaner environment
• New jobs and higher employment
• Money stays in the community
• Well-being and emotional satisfaction

Here’s how our services can help communities decarbonize

CCE tracks the latest
developments in energy
so communities can avoid
making decisions based on
obsolete data.

Education & Events

We hold non-commercial
educational conferences
and seminars on timely
topics in renewable energy
technology and policy

Advising

The future really can be better for the people who come next

A stable climate. Clean air. Vibrant nature. Quiet cities. Abundant energy.

 

We have the power to make it so. At CCE, we are working hard to ensure a planet that’s a pleasure to live on. The inventor of the polio vaccine, Jonas Salk, said it best:
“The future really can be better for the people who come next”
