Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program is dedicated to connecting students throughout the Commonwealth to internships at Massachusetts-based clean energy companies. This Program supports education and training opportunities that align with the Commonwealth’s clean energy goals and industry growth, while furthering the career goals of those considering career opportunities in clean energy and simultaneously targeting employer needs to retain and attract a strong talent pool.

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center’s (MassCEC) mission is to foster the growth of the Massachusetts clean energy industry by providing seed grants to companies, universities, and nonprofit organizations; funding job training and workforce development programs; and, as home of the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust, supporting the installation of renewable energy projects throughout the state.
