State Clean Energy Resource Project

The State Clean Energy Resource Project serves as a national “geological survey” of energy efficiency and renewable resources. It is a center for information and expertise that facilitates clean energy policy adoption and implementation at the state level. While the scope is nation-wide, the focus is on those transitional states that are poised to adopt and implement sustainable energy policies and programs. By drawing together key experts and analytical capabilities in a focused effort, this project supports clean energy policy initiatives in a timely manner with extensive stakeholder engagement, comprehensive analysis, and more focused technical assistance than has been applied to these challenges in the past. It also serves as an independent, unbiased resource to support the implementation of the policies at a state level. Funding for the State Clean Energy Resource Project is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Energy Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and additional state foundations and agencies.

See Efficiency in Action: ACEEE and State Energy Policy for an overview of past SCERP projects and the resulting state accomplishments.
