  • Mission:
  • The Clean Coalition's mission is making clean local energy accessible now.
    We work towards policies and programs that accelerate the adoption of cost-effective clean local energy across the United States.

  • History:

  • The Clean Coalition is a non-profit organization with the mission of making clean, local energy accessible now while delivering unparalleled economic benefits. The organization has established a strong reputation for comprehensive policy and program work at the local, state, and national levels.

    Founded in early 2009 in Palo Alto, the Clean Coalition quickly established itself as a leader in clean energy policy matters. At all levels of government, the Clean Coalition is highly respected for using objective analyses and empirical best-practices to design policy and programs that maximize benefits for all constituencies, including developers, regulators, manufacturers, utilities, and ratepayers.

    In addition to direct policy actions, the Clean Coalition works to enable like-minded entities to pursue its desired policy outcomes. As a “go-to” organization for policymakers, industry participants, and advocates alike, the Clean Coalition has an extensive network for building coalitions and leveraging external collaboration.

    A major ingredient of the Clean Coalition’s success is that it adheres to a vital set of guiding principles, as follows:

    • Policies, both legislative and regulatory, should be simple, fair, and effective.
    • Policies should deliver both economic leadership and environmental sustainability.
    • Policy positions must be well supported by objective analyses and empirical reality.
    • Policies should be established on market-based mechanisms.
    • Policy outcomes should deliver transparent programs and level playing fields for all market participants.
    • Courage and determination are prerequisites to achieving significant policy results, since entrenched and dominant market participants will generally resist change; often with significant capital and vigor.
