Organizational Structure of the Local Clean Energy Alliance

The Local Clean Energy Alliance was founded in 2007 by Bay Localize, Pacific Environment, and the Sierra Club. The Alliance is fiscally sponsored by Social and Enrironmental Entrepreneurs, but otherwise operates independently, determining its own program and campaigns.

Local Clean Energy Alliance Members

Alliance membership is open to both organizations and individuals. Members support the goals and perspectives that guide the Alliance and participate in the Alliance’s program and activities. Members are also the main source of financial support for the Alliance.

Current membership includes environmental, environmental justice, labor, business, educational, community, and faith based organizations.

Local Clean Energy Alliance Steering Committee

This body, composed of volunteer representatives of the Alliance's voting organizational members and committed individual members, sets the overall direction and priorities for the Local Clean Energy Alliance, based on policies and campaigns approved in conjunction with voting organizational members.

The Steering Committee is responsible for proposing and implementing campaigns; planning/organizing meetings, conferences, and actions; representing or speaking on behalf of the Alliance; building Alliance membership, partnerships, and resources; and fundraising and managing the Alliance budget.

Local Clean Energy Alliance Staff

The Alliance is staffed by a Coordinator, who organizes and coordinates the work of the Steering Committee and of the Alliance more broadly, and by one or more interns who assist in the day-to-day efforts of the Alliance.

Local Clean Energy Alliance Volunteers

The ability of the Alliance to carry out its program rests principally with volunteers who have an abiding passion for the clean power, healthy communities perspective of the Local Clean Energy Alliance. In addition to those volunteers who serve on the Steering Committee, many others generously contribute their time and energy to the program, campaigns, and movement building efforts of the Alliance.
