Current Programs & Initiatives
The Midwest Energy Accelerator is a joint program between Detroit-based NextEnergy and Chicago-based Clean Energy Trust. Both organizations are the Midwestern recipients of the National Incubator Initiative for Clean Energy (NIICE) grant, a Department of Energy (DOE) national support network that serves clean energy small businesses and entrepreneurs by providing critical technical assistance and training services in order to bring their technologies closer to market readiness.
NextChallenge is a technology “solutions” challenge that spurs the development of revolutionary energy solutions and creates ground-breaking opportunities to drive product differentiation and technology innovation.
The Clean Energy Roadmap is a collaborative effort between Michigan and Northeast Ohio to accelerate the region’s clean-energy sector through focused strategies for identifying and advancing energy efficiency building technologies, products, services and strategies for clean energy manufacturing processes.
