Our Advisory Board thoughtfully considered the issues and challenges facing our Center, our students, Washington’s Community and Technical College system, and the energy industry in the Pacific Northwest.
We engaged with focus groups across Washington State for a candid assessment of our organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges. We heard consistently that it is the strength of our partnership with industry, labor and education that has been the pillar of our success.
Grants & Projects
The Clean Energy Center of Excellence and Centralia College have successfully secured and managed large state and federal grants. The Center has a proven progression of leadership in managing and supporting Grant-funded Projects of over $30 million during an eight-year period.
Each year from 2005-2017, the Center presented the Energy Best Practices Summit, one of the premier energy and construction workforce conferences in the Northwest for energy and construction educators, industry, organized labor, and economic and workforce development representatives.
