Investing in Relationships: Strategies State Agencies Can Use to Equitably Partner with Community Representatives
This case study analyzes six programs conducted by the Energy Trust of Oregon that have shown success in building meaningful and impactful relationships with community representatives. These programs can serve as a model for other state agencies seeking to develop relationships with community partners in order to better meet their shared goals.
This report explores how philanthropic foundations have supported the deployment of solar and solar plus battery storage in low- and moderate-income communities in the United States.
Energy modeling—using computer software and mathematical equations to simulate the operation and growth of energy systems—can be a powerful tool for state decarbonization planning. But because modeling can be costly and the results can be prone to misinterpretation, models need to be used carefully.
CESA submitted a response to a RFI from the US DOE about two programs authorized by the IRA — Home Efficiency Rebates and Home Electrification Rebates.
This report highlights best practices, identifies barriers, and underscores the urgent need to expand state energy storage policymaking to support decarbonization in the US.
This report outlines how different states view the equity implications of climate impacts, and what they are proposing for mitigation solutions, planning processes, and implementation processes. It identifies common themes and best practices, and it presents a selection of relevant case studies and examples.
CESA has compiled a searchable list of clean energy technical assistance opportunities available to states. The list is available as an interactive table or downloadable excel document, and it will be regularly updated when new opportunities become available to states.
This report is intended as a guide for state energy agencies preparing to conduct cost-effectiveness evaluation for battery storage. It presents a benefit-cost analysis framework for battery storage and attempts to address many of the uncertainties state energy agencies may encounter.
Clean Energy Group and the Clean Energy States Alliance submitted comments to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities on the New Jersey Energy Storage Incentive Program Straw Proposal.
Comments on the Solar for All Competition of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund
CESA submitted comments to the EPA regarding the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Implementation Framework, authorized under the IRA. The comments chiefly pertain to the Solar for All Competition but also relate to some of the requirements set under the GGRF Framework applicable to all three competitions.
