CEE recognizes key strategies to overcome market barriers include creating powerful tools, messaging, and resources that cities, the state, utilities, and others can use to drive customer awareness. We seek a combined effort to define target audiences, set measurable goals, 
maintain reputable marketing practices, and maximize market impact by adapting to evolving needs and trends.
