About Center For Energy Efficiency

The Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Technologies (CEERT) is a partnership of major environmental groups and private-sector clean energy companies.  We design and fight for policies that promote global warming solutions and increased reliance on clean, renewable energy sources for California and the West.

CEERT is a nonprofit public-benefit organization founded in 1990 and based in Sacramento, California. Our team of professional staff, board members, and affiliates includes scientists, attorneys, economists, policy experts, public-interest advocates, and green-technology entrepreneurs. We carry out our technical, policy-making, and policy-implementing work through advocacy programs that focus on key renewable-energy development issues.  We are active as participants and intervenors before the full spectrum of federal, state, regional and local energy agencies.

A crucial underpinning to CEERT’s growing effectiveness has been the recognition and support we have received from enlightened funding partners like the Energy Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Resources Legacy Fund, and the Western Clean Energy Campaign.

With the public increasingly demanding that the U.S. cut our contributions to global warming and our dependence on imported fossil fuels, the time has come to build the new energy economy. CEERT is helping lead the way.
