Happy 2nd Birthday to the Clean Energy Business Network

May 1, 2019 | Lynn Abramson and Andy Barnes, Clean Energy Business Network

Here at the Clean Energy Business Network (CEBN), we have much to celebrate on our birthday.

May 1, 2019 marks the second anniversary of our partnership with the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE). This year also marks the tenth anniversary of our original founding by The Pew Charitable Trusts. So we are either celebrating our second or tenth birthday, depending how you look at it.

Since our transition out of Pew two years ago to become the small business arm of BCSE, we have continued and strengthened our legacy of advancing policies and public education to grow the clean energy economy. Additionally, we have launched new resources to enable businesses to reach new markets and grow.

We are proud to share a few milestones that we have achieved over the past two years in partnership with the BCSE and the more than 3,000 clean energy business leaders across our network.
