DOE Webinar May 12: Community Energy Strategic Planning and the New CESP Academy
May 09, 2011
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) for state and local energy officials will present a webinar Thursday, May 12, about the value of Community Energy Strategic Planning (CESP) at both the city and county levels. The webinar will focus on strategies that communities can use to implement renewable energy technologies and realize significant energy savings. At the webinar, you will also hear about the upcoming launch of the CESP Academy—a free source of technical assistance that can provide customized support for your community's ongoing and planned energy efficiency projects.
The CESP Academy is designed to help community leaders:
- develop an energy vision
- engage important stakeholders
- design effective energy programs
- identify funding sources
- map out custom strategies to implement and manage energy efficiency projects.
This presentation will take place May 12, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Eastern. In addition to helping launch the CESP Academy’s proactive technical assistance and outreach program, this webinar will also provide information about the application process to work with the academy. Local governments who are chosen to participate will work directly with TAP analysts to strategically plan their energy efficiency projects.
This webinar is free of charge, but you must sign up in advance to obtain a URL for the presentation and call-in phone number. You can register online, find information about the presenters, and read background materials and reports on the Technical Assistance Webinars section of the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory website.
