Our engineers are especially equipped to meet the needs of complex or unique buildings such as schools, ice arenas, correctional, manufacturing, and large facilities.

We envision a healthy, carbon-neutral economy that works for all people.

The CEE team provides practical energy solutions to help homes, buildings, and communities thrive. As a people-centered nonprofit, we exist to discover and deploy the most effective energy solutions that strengthen the economy and improve the environment. From independent technical research to program development and implementation, community engagement, policy advocacy, and project financing, our full range of expertise and deep experience is largely unique nationwide. Fittingly, you can trace the roots of today’s CEE all the way back to twin beginnings in Minnesota’s Twin Cities — in the Energy Office of Minneapolis in 1979 and as a consortium of St. Paul neighborhood organizations in the mid-1980s. Each helped define the framework for a national energy efficiency movement and established our team’s long history of collaboration to develop and deliver energy efficiency programs for homeowners, renters, businesses, and communities. Over the decades, we've built our reputation by balancing a science-driven mindset with values-driven strategies. Midwestern to the core, we tailor our pragmatic approach to each unique relationship and location-specific data — we work with you and for you. Learn more at
