The Clean Energy Innovation Academy (CEIA) is an ongoing educational series focused on conservative clean energy technology and policy. This series will consist of educational briefings with industry experts and university partners on technologies including advanced nuclear, storage, hydropower, natural gas, carbon capture and geothermal. The program will consist of seven sessions. Certification will be awarded to individuals who complete four or more sessions. The CEIA is hosted by ClearPath and the Clean Energy Leadership Institute (CELI).
