About the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center

Massachusetts Clean Energy Center logoCreated by the Green Jobs Act of 2008, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center’s (MassCEC) mission is to foster the growth of the Massachusetts clean energy industry through seed grants to companies, universities, and nonprofit organizations, job training programs, workforce development grants, and support for renewable energy projects. As of November 23, 2009 MassCEC is the new home of the Renewable Energy Trust. This exciting transition comes as a result of legislation, passed by the Massachusetts Legislature and signed by Governor Deval Patrick, to provide the residents, businesses, and communities of the Commonwealth with a single source of support for clean energy.  More information is available at www.MassCEC.com
