New Jersey’s Clean Energy ProgramTM

A little about us

The Clean Energy Learning Center provides online education to the full range of stakeholder groups engaged with the Clean Energy Program – building owners and managers; design professionals; energy and other professionals; contractors; code officials; homeowners and CEP program representatives. Education is provided at a variety of scales to suit the particular needs of individual users: from short, 1-5 minute tutorials; to in-field demonstrations; to full-length courses that provide comprehensive training on a particular topic or procedure and that qualify for continuing education credit. The site currently provides educational offerings that address two key Clean Energy Program categories: Residential and Commercial, Industrial, and Local Government.

Morris & Essex Line Broad Street Station
A five-block walk to the NJIT campus via MLK Blvd. or University Ave. to Central Avenue. Taxi service is also available. NJ Transit Light Rail is also available. (Note: the Light Rail route requires a switch at Newark’s Penn Station; this mode of transport will take you some time).

The shuttle bus is operated jointly with Rutgers-Newark and provides transportation for the University community between the two campuses, major mass transit systems, and Harrison and Kearny. As a courtesy, shuttle service is free to the Rutgers/NJIT community who present identification.
