About Climate + Energy Project

The Climate + Energy Project (CEP) is a non-partisan 501c(3) organization working to reduce emissions through greater energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy. Located in America’s Heartland, CEP collaborates with diverse partners across the nation to find practical solutions for a clean energy future that provides jobs, prosperity and energy security.

In 2009, CEP created the Take Charge Challenge to bring together regional organizations in an exciting energy competition. Since then, both the challenge and the impact have continued to grow. The Take Charge Challenge has been recognized nationally in news media, magazines, scientific reports and film for utilizing competition to drive energy efficiency actions.
