Our aim

Clean Energy Reviews (CER) came about in order to educate ourselves, others working in the clean energy industry and consumers as to what the best renewable energy and sustainability technologies are. We do this by analysing, testing and reviewing new products to determine which brands are the best and which manufactures provide the best products & services.  This is based on features, value for money, quality and efficiency.

We believe clean energy offers us a great opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Together with help from friends and acquaintances in the Clean Energy sector, CER aims to pool the knowledge of consumers and experienced technicians to find the best products and services in renewable energy and sustainability.
