Washington, D.C. – Today the Clean Energy Business Network joined a coalition of 16 clean energy and energy efficiency trade associations and businesses on a letter to Congress urging appropriators to provide robust support for clean energy programs in FY2024. The coalition, led by CEBN’s parent organization the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, called on Congress to support the bipartisan Senate spending proposals which adhere to the negotiated budget caps. Lynn Abramson, President of the Clean Energy Business Network, issued the following statement:

“Small businesses across the country are innovating the next generation of clean, affordable, reliable energy solutions with support from federal grant and technical assistance programs. Continuing to scale investment in federal energy programs is critical to creating opportunities for startups and small businesses to bring their technologies to market and create jobs and economic growth in their communities.”

A collection of statements from signatories to the joint letter can be found on BCSE’s website.


The Clean Energy Business Network (CEBN) is the small business voice for the clean energy economy, working to enhance opportunities for clean energy providers through policy support, market and technology education, and business development assistance.
