Since incorporating in April of 2010, Clean Energy Trust has spearheaded programs that are revolutionizing the Midwest as a clean energy ecosystem. Our team has led the implementation of multiple partnerships that intersect public and private ventures. Technology commercialization and mentorship, policy and advocacy programming, and supporting breakthrough clean energy research are the pillars of our mission. These programs have been funded by the U.S Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Commerce, Small Business Administration, and numerous corporate sponsors. Clean Energy Trust has proven successful, helping startups to raise over $139 M in follow-on investment from venture capitalists and the federal government.
