The Clean Energy Grants Program, administered by the Energy Conservation and Management Division of the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department (ECMD-EMNRD), supports the development of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and alternative transportation fuels technologies. Grants are available to municipalities and county governments, state agencies, public schools (K-12), post-secondary educational institutions (colleges/universities), and tribal entities.

Capital projects resulting from the current Request for Proposals will be required to meet performance measures established for the Program, including a 5% reduction in energy consumption in building projects or 15% increase in alternative fuel usage. Educational and non-capital projects must provide one of the following benefits: increasing the development of clean energy market demand; or advancing commercialization and widespread application of clean energy technologies.

In 2005, the ECMD-EMNRD awarded a total of about $2 million in funding for 23 projects, including energy efficiency lighting upgrades, photovoltaic and solar thermal installations, wind projects, a landfill gas-to-energy biomass facility, and an expansion of E-85 and biodiesel fuel station infrastructure within the state.
