The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), in partnership with the Surdna Foundation, is offering technical assistance services over the next 12 months to local governments and other local stakeholders around the United States on energy efficiency policy and program implementation. ACEEE staff will provide research, subject matter expertise, and other technical assistance resources for priority projects. Technical assistance products may range from structured conference calls for identifying strategies on particular issues, to memos, fact sheets, spreadsheet analyses, or presentations to a stakeholder audience.
In the face of declining federal funds for local energy efficiency activities, ACEEE is positioned to help city officials and program operators to continue to advance energy efficiency innovations, help move projects to scale, and/or troubleshoot promising models. Requests for technical assistance will be accepted on a rolling basis from May 2012 through June 2013. Please read this document for additional information on requesting technical assistance. Contact Eric Mackres, Senior Researcher and Local Policy Lead, ACEEE, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
