The Colorado Energy Science Center (CESC) was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in the state of Colorado in August 1999. It was organized exclusively for educational and charitable purposes. It has been granted tax-exempt status by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Start-up funding was provided through generous grants from the managing partners of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory: Battelle, Bechtel, and Midwest Research Institute. While initially CESC will function as a virtual center, it is anticipated that, within three to five years, CESC will operate an Energy Science Center providing interactive learning opportunities for all ages.
