Clean Energy to Communities Overview (Text Version)
This is a text version of the video Clean Energy to Communities Overview. It describes how the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Energy to Communities (C2C) program helps communities make strategic and impactful clean energy decisions.
All across the country, momentum is growing for a clean energy economy. But every community has different resources, priorities, and challenges. That’s why the U.S. Department of Energy has launched a new community-led program called Clean Energy to Communities, or C2C.
After listening to dozens of local leaders, utilities, and community-based organizations about the challenges they face in transforming their energy systems, C2C was designed to provide support that meets communities where they are.
Because towns and cities face complex challenges that aren’t limited to a single sector or technology, C2C connects communities with the advanced capabilities of national labs, providing a holistic approach to solving their clean energy challenges.

Bringing together innovative technology, state-of-the-art modeling, and unique abilities to test plans before installing them in the field, C2C can help close the gap between clean energy ambitions and real-world deployment.
By prioritizing energy equity and environmental justice and de-risking investments, C2C helps communities make strategic and impactful decisions. Get involved, because together we can supercharge our transition to clean energy from sea to shining sea.
