About Us


A nonprofit with one mission – Decarbonize ®

Center for Sustainable Energy ® (CSE) is a national nonprofit that accelerates adoption of clean transportation and distributed energy through effective and equitable program design and administration. Governments, utilities and the private sector trust CSE for its data-driven and software-enabled approach, deep domain expertise and customer-focused team.

Our vision is a future with sustainable, equitable and resilient transportation, buildings and communities.

Who We Are


We are a collaborative team living and working across the U.S. to create a more sustainable, equitable and resilient future. We're proud of CSE's reputation as a trusted, objective partner. CSE's fee-for-service business model frees it from the influence of shareholders, members and donors, and ensures its independence.
