More Information
On September 6, the Clean Energy Business Network (CEBN) launched a member-driven effort to develop our new strategic plan. If you’re a current member or interested in joining, here’s what you need to know:
.
The CEBN is a group of over 3,000 business leaders across the U.S. and some internationally, representing every aspect of the clean energy economy. Many are C-suite executives of small- to medium-size energy businesses. We work to promote opportunities for renewable energy, efficiency, natural gas, and other clean energy and transportation technologies. We inform and engage businesses in these sectors in relevant policy issues, promote greater public and policymaker awareness and understanding of clean energy technologies, and provide resources to help members address common business challenges.
.
This is an exciting time for the CEBN. In May 2017, we spun out of our former home at The Pew Charitable Trusts to become an independent initiative of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), giving the clean energy industry a stronger, more unified voice. Our new structure will enable us to provide new types of resources for businesses and engage our members more directly in shaping the priorities of the organization.
.
As the CEBN grows and evolves, we must ask ourselves: What policy and business challenges are impacting the clean energy industry, and our members specifically? What unique resources can the CEBN provide to address these challenges? How do our members’ priorities align with the BCSE’s? What should be the top priorities for our organization?
.
We kicked off our member-based planning effort on Wednesday, September 6 at 2:00 pm ET with a webinar outlining the process and the ways members can participate. The slides and recording are now available for download.
.
Please respond to our questionnaire by September 21 to share your policy and business priorities and ideas for our organization. The questionnaire takes 10 minutes to complete and will directly influence the future of the CEBN. You can get started by answering the first question at the top of this page.
.
Additionally, we have formed a Strategic Planning Committee to discuss overarching questions about the future of the organization, and a series of six Advisory Committees diving more deeply into the policy and business interests of particular subsets of our membership. If you would like to join one of these committees, please click here to see a complete schedule of upcoming calls and instructions for registration.
.
Input from our CEBN members is crucial to the future success of our organization. We look forward to working together to advance the clean energy industry!
