The State Policy Opportunity Tracker (SPOT) for Clean Energy evaluates existing policies across all 50 states and identifies opportunities for policy expansion.
Publications authored or co-authored by CNEE staff about U.S. energy policy.
Repowering the Western Economy is the umbrella for CNEE’s work with Western states and utilities as they transition to clean energy sources.
The Clean Energy Legislative Academy (CELA) brings together a bi-partisan cohort of state legislators and their staffers to learn about emerging energy issues.
CNEE lifts up voices from coal-reliant communities to inspire better energy transition solutions and support effective state-level decision making.

What we do

We convene policymakers and facilitate dialogue among stakeholders, connecting energy policy leaders to experts. We create and maintain free, publicly available tools and resources, and publish energy policy research.

“For me, the New Energy Economy has always been about our future, our kids’ future, our grandkids’ future. I think in order to survive in this created space we inhabit, we need to produce and consume energy differently. If we do not then our legacy for our children will be a Colorado inferior to the Colorado that we live in.”

– Colorado’s 41st Governor, Bill Ritter, Jr., Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy, Colorado State University
