National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), described by POLITICO as “a veritable who’s who of the Clean Energy World,” is an annual awareness week to recognize the value of clean energy including abundant job opportunities, economic growth, energy independence, consumer choice, lower energy prices, and a cleaner environment. NCEW is supported by CRES Forum, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that serves as NCEW’s fiscal agent.
