Our Definition of Clean Energy

The transition to predominantly green and renewable energy use will take time. Clean energy is often associated with technologies like solar panels and wind turbines, but clean energy goes beyond such domains. NM CERG’s definition of clean energy includes geothermal, nuclear, and other technologies that contribute to a cleaner energy ecosystem, even if the source of that energy is carbon-based.

Clean energy includes both the capture of renewable sources and how that energy is transported, stored, connected, and integrated into our infrastructure. Products and services that integrate these technologies and provide positive impacts in both clean energy and carbon-based by-products align with NM CERG’s definition of a green future.

NM CERG is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Technology Transitions.
