ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

To promote clean energy and 

technologies through education and 

advocacy for a stronger economic 

future.

OUR HISTORY

Clean Energy NH was originally the "NH Sustainable Energy Association", or "NHSEA". The organization was founded in 2003 by a small group of homeowners and renewable energy enthusiasts interested in networking and learning about sustainable building and residential renewable energy applications. The organization evolved to become a registered membership-based non-profit in 2008.

In 2019, NHSEA united with our business group, the NH Clean Tech Council, under the brand "Clean Energy NH". As our influence and activities have expanded to include electric vehicles, energy storage, economic development, infrastructure, and beyond, rebranding positions the organization to continue our track record of success with renewed vigor and a revised mission. 

OUR WORK

We build relationships among people and organizations using a fact-based approach that offers objective, balanced, and practical insights for transforming NH's clean energy economy and sustaining its citizens’ way of life. We educate audiences on all matters pertaining to generating, storing, and efficiently using clean energy and to accelerate technology and opportunities that provide a more prosperous, eco-friendly future.
