DOE Webinar September 29: Driving Demand for Home Energy Improvements

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Project (TAP) for state and local officials will present a Webinar on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 about the factors that drive the market for residential energy improvements.

The Technical Assistance Project supports projects funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act under the State Energy Program (SEP) and Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program (EECBG). It provides states, cities, and tribes with the tools and resources needed to implement successful, sustainable renewable energy projects and deploy cost-effective, clean, and reliable energy-saving technologies in buildings and infrastructure nationwide.

At the Webinar, participants will hear about a soon-to-be-released report from DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory that includes case studies and best practices for increasing participation in residential energy efficiency programs and for promoting energy efficiency. Participants will also hear about the Center for Energy and the Environment "One Stop" Community Energy Services program in Minnesota, which provides a multi-step residential energy efficiency program that includes major home energy improvements, installation of low cost materials, and reinforcement of good energy habits.

The presentation will take place Wednesday, September 29, from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, and is titled Driving Demand for Home Energy Improvements: Lessons from the Field.
