All MassCEC Programs

MassCEC offers a number of programs to help grow the clean energy industry in Massachusetts, with offerings helping residents, businesses, non-profits and government agencies finance the planning and implementation of clean energy projects. MassCEC programs also help clean energy businesses grow their operations in Massachusetts. Below is an alphabetical list of programs currently offered by MassCEC.

Green Workforce: Energy Efficiency

Green Workforce: Energy Efficiency is a program aimed at creating and supporting energy efficiency and sustainability job training programs to supply the growing sector.

Formerly known as MassGreen, the program has collaborated with industry, employers, nonprofits, and government agencies to develop and deliver clean energy training programs at community colleges across Massachusetts to trainees, contractors, construction tradespeople, entry level workers, unemployed and under-employed individuals and clean energy business entrepreneurs. 

Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program helps prepare the next generation of clean energy workers by connecting students and recent graduates with Massachusetts companies in need of interns.

The program helps provide Massachusetts clean energy businesses with a talented pool of young professionals, with MassCEC providing stipends for interns during fall, spring and summer sessions, who in turn are given valuable experience they can use as they begin their careers in this quickly-growing sector.

Pathways Out of Poverty

The Pathways Out of Poverty program provides grant funding for job training programs that help low- and moderate-income earners build careers in the clean energy sector and attain financial self-sufficiency.

Created when the Act Relative to Clean Energy was signed into law by Governor Deval Patrick in November 2009, Pathways Out of Poverty provides funding for green collar job training offered by clean energy companies, community-based nonprofit groups, educational institutions and labor organizations throughout Massachusetts.

Workforce Capacity Building

MassCEC's Workforce Capacity Building program provides funding for clean energy-centered science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for students throughout the Commonwealth.

The initiative targets Massachusetts vocational-technical high schools, colleges, universities and community-based non-profit groups to help train students for careers in the rapidly-growing clean energy sector.
