The Institute for Energy & Sustainability (IES) is central New England’s green business zone. Our mission is to attract clean energy technology and renewable energy companies to the region. We are building on the region’s assets and reputation as an incubator of innovation. Our priority is to create an environment for those seeking economic opportunity and advantage in this sector and to support the growth of jobs establishing a zone of world class clean technology companies.
The Institute formally launched in the spring of 2009 through partnerships with Clark University, WPI and Congressman Jim McGovern’s office. With our partners, IES is working to transform the industrial corridors of Central Massachusetts into a green energy zone that includes research, development, deployment, and an economic development focus towards demonstrating a working example and active contributor to sustainability solutions.
