The Colorado Clean Energy Cluster (CCEC) is an ‘enterprise to attract, incubate and grow clean energy enterprises’
The CCEC is an economic development organization aimed at growing primary jobs in Colorado in the area of clean energy through formal partnerships between clean energy companies, the public sector and higher education.
As a unique statewide organization fostering market transformation for clean energy, the CCEC is focused on innovative and entrepreneurial ways to grow the clean energy sector through actionable projects and initiatives that directly benefit Colorado clean energy companies.
Central to the CCEC's success is cross-cutting collaboration exemplified by the CCEC's "triple helix" model. An example of the model at work is the FortZED initiative, which brings together cleantech businesses, Colorado State University and the City of Fort Collins.
