Energy Solutions

CEE leads with more than 30 years’ experience in gas and electric energy efficiency solutions. Programs we piloted 20 years ago are now some of the most successful energy programs in Minnesota today. 

Our Impact Last Year

We work with utilities and communities to develop and implement innovative, cost-effective energy efficiency solutions. We set the standard with a data-based, interdisciplinary method to discover and test new approaches for an evolving industry.


We’ve helped thousands of homeowners reduce energy use while making their homes more comfortable. We employ behavioral research, customer service, and a "one-stop" approach to help customers overcome traditional barriers to energy savings.


We help commercial buildings cut energy spending through programs that track usage and efficiency strategies that are straightforward and affordable. Our experts also provide technical assistance with a focus on practical solutions for complex energy issues.


Our field professionals specialize in accessible options to empower community action. For clean and efficient energy planning, residents and utilities need credible data, analysis, and facilitation to inform the best choices to meet each community’s energy goals.
