About the Clean Energy for America Inaugural Ball: Cleantech Leaders Roundtable, a nonpartisan group of clean energy leaders registered as a 501(c)(4), is processing sales and sponsorships and managing payments for the event. Event proceeds will first go to pay the costs of the event, and any net proceeds will go to support nonprofit organizations that are working hard to build a clean and equitable energy future for America. Clean Energy for Biden (CE4B), is not a registered organization to date, but rather a volunteer-led effort to elect Biden-Harris. CE4B is working to determine its future organizational structure, which will continue in the spirit of organizing the clean energy industry and advocacy voices to support clean energy, action on climate and environmental justice.
About Clean Energy for Biden: Clean Energy for Biden (CE4B) is a network of clean economy business leaders and advocates organized to elect Joe Biden as President and advance policies, technologies and investment to address the climate challenge. Our industry is one of the nation’s fastest-growing and combines both financial strength and ‘boots on the ground’ which made a significant electoral impact in 2020. CE4B believes that organizing, fundraising and advocacy to advance America’s clean energy economy, combat climate change and fight for environmental justice has never been more important.
