The National Alliance of Clean Energy Business Incubators (NACEBI), which began in 2000 by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), has become the Clean Energy Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of clean energy businesses.

The Clean Energy Alliance will take the model of the NACEBI and expand it by offering greater resources and a broader geographic reach, the association says. It plans to add 10 more incubators in 2007, as well as offer expertise, business connections and information essential to accelerating the growth of clean energy businesses nationwide, while maintaining close ties with NREL and DOE.

"We look forward to the opportunity of establishing partnerships and extending our reach to achieve our vision: education and outreach, business acceleration, technology transfer, technology development and incubation services," says Pradeep Haldar, chair of the Clean Energy Alliance.

To reach its goal, the alliance will host a variety of workshops and forums and develop assistance for refining company business plans - similar to NREL's growth forums.
