Sustainable Energy Incubator

Clean Power Alliance is proud to introduce an exciting new program called the “Sustainable Energy Incubator” in partnership with the Local Government Commission (LGC). The Sustainable Energy Incubator aims to engage Clean Power Alliance board members, staff, local member agencies, and other stakeholders to address emerging energy issues through educational workshops and direct support.

Quarterly Workshops

We will be hosting a series of quarterly, in-person workshops where experts will cover a range of energy and climate topics to increase the awareness of energy issues, available tools, resources, and best practices for attendees to take back to their own communities. These workshops are free and open to the public.

Workshop Presentations and Recordings

All video recordings of the Incubator presentations can be found on Clean Power Alliance's Vimeo channel here.
