The Clean Coalition is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to accelerate the transition to renewable energy and a modern grid through technical, policy, and project development expertise.
We believe in expanding the use of renewable energy by creating fair, transparent, and effective policies and programs:
We drive policy innovation to remove barriers to procurement and interconnection of distributed energy resources (DER) such as local renewables, energy storage, and demand response
We establish programs and market mechanisms that realize the full potential of integrating these solutions
We are active in numerous proceedings before state and federal agencies throughout the U.S.
We collaborate with utilities and other load-serving entities, municipalities, and other jurisdictions to create near-term deployment opportunities that prove the technical and economic viability of local DER
Ultimately, the Clean Coalition envisions the United States being 100% powered by renewable energy, substantially from local sources. To make this goal a reality, we are working to achieve these objectives by 2025:
From 2025 onward, at least 80% of all electricity generated from newly added generation capacity in the United States will be from renewable energy sources.
From 2025 onward, at least 25% of all electricity generated from newly added generation capacity in the United States will be from local renewable energy sources. Locally generated electricity does not travel over the transmission grid to get from the location it is generated to where it is consumed.
By 2025, policies and programs are well established for ensuring successful fulfillment of the other two objectives. Policies reflect the full value of local renewable energy, and programs prove the superiority of local energy systems in terms of economics, environment, and resilience — as well as timeliness.
