National Coalition of Clean Energy Incubators

Convening the nation's leading clean energy incubators.

The National Coalition of Clean Energy Incubators (NCCEI) brings together the most powerful and effective cleantech incubators in the U.S. 

Together, this national coalition promotes robust growth of regional energy innovation ecosystems across the nation by providing support for startups and entrepreneurs whose businesses focus on clean energy-related technologies.

Leading the Coalition

Under LACI’s leadership, NCCEI’s members have unanimously adopted a Statement of Principles in support of Justice40, the Biden-Harris Administration’s signature environmental justice policy. In the statement of principles, NCCEI members vow to prioritize initiatives that increase support and enhance opportunities for diverse underrepresented cleantech entrepreneurs, provide job training for at-risk communities and scale deployment of clean energy solutions in disadvantaged communities.

“Thanks to President Biden and the U.S. Congress, federal agencies are making historic levels of investment to advance environmental justice as we respond to the climate crisis,” said Matt Petersen, CEO of LACI. “That is why clean technology incubators like those represented in the NCCEI understand that we need to help advance the President’s equity priorities–as represented by Justice40–as we play our individual and collective roles in building an inclusive green economy, creating good-paying, green jobs while deploying equitable climate solutions in disadvantaged communities, and supporting underrepresented founders to scale their game changing solutions.”
