Clean and Equitable Energy Development Certificate Program

Make clean energy and resilience a reality for all.

Yale's new Clean and Equitable Energy Development (CEED) Certificate Program helps leaders bring the advantages of clean energy development to those most impacted by climate change. The 12-week curriculum dives into what it takes to scope, design, finance and develop clean energy projects that drive local economic development and resilience.

Taught by a combination of Yale faculty and experts in the field, the CEED program covers:

  • Foundational energy concepts, 
  • Foundational theory and practice of environmental and climate justice,
  • Diverse approaches to energy justice, and
  • The nuts and bolts of energy project development.

The CEED program is designed to accelerate the benefits of clean energy for those who need it most, such as Justice40 communities in the US or frontline communities worldwide.
