The Greater Cleveland/Cuyahoga County region is generating a significant pipeline of contracting opportunities for energy efficiency retrofits in public, commercial and residential buildings; renewable energy projects; stormwater management projects; and green infrastructure projects.
Emerald Cities Collaborative is a national nonprofit committed to helping MWSBE (Minority-owned, Women-owned or Small Business Enterprises) contractors and disadvantaged workers build careers in the energy efficiency, renewables and water sectors. Additionally, Emerald Cities Cleveland works with government, business, labor and community stakeholders to build demand for energy efficiency, renewable energy and clean building projects and then connect MWSBE contractors and disadvantaged workers to these opportunities through programs like our highly successful E-Contractor Academy.
The Cleveland/Cuyahoga E-Contractor Academy is made possible through generous support of the JP Morgan Chase Foundation.
E-Contractor Academy provides a series of topical seminars, peer-to-peer learning and networking events proven to help local contractors build their careers and businesses by preparing them to compete for, win and perform public- and private-sector energy efficiency and renewable energy projects across the Greater Cleveland Metropolitan Area. So if your MWSBE business currently performs or would like to learn how to deliver services related to energy efficiency, renewables and/or stormwater management projects, E-Contractor Academy can help you grow your business.
