Overview

In the face of tremendous challenges posed by climate change, energy security, and diminishing fossil fuel supply, the need to transform our energy infrastructure is both a national and global imperative. The clean energy sector is poised to be the center of major entrepreneurial focus and tremendous job growth, but will require the leadership of executives well-versed in clean energy.

The Leading Clean Energy Ventures Certificate program will propel experienced executives into the new energy landscape by examining the social, technological, economic, and policy issues in this rapidly developing industry. Participants will examine the finite details of clean energy with industry experts and develop practical capstone projects that result in a new business concept, market strategy, business plan, or financing model.

Boston University School of Management Executive Leadership Center (ELC) and the New England Clean Energy Council (NECEC) have formed a partnership to address a simple but acute problem: the lack of repeat entrepreneurs and seasoned executives in the clean energy sector. The objective of the program is to encourage and prepare experienced entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to enter the clean technology sector, leading new venture formation, job creation and growth of the clean energy industry.
