Welcome to NM CERG

The New Mexico Clean Energy Resilience and Growth (NM CERG) cluster – funded in part by the Department of Energy – is a new effort targeting clean energy technology companies and providing them with the support they need to succeed. NM CERG’s model creates a pipeline for success, guiding participants through the steps necessary for growth and development and supporting them each step of the way.

Under NM CERG, qualified participants gain access to business development activities such as market capture, technology development through testing and evaluation with federal lab partners, and ongoing support for the duration of the commercial market pipeline. Find out more about the assistance offered under NM CERG in our Modules page.
