One-on-One Assistance for State, Local, and Tribal Energy Programs

    The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) provides targeted, one-on-one assistance to help state, local, and tribal governments with energy programs. In-depth assistance through TAP is available for these priority areas:

    • Strategic energy planning
    • Energy policy and program design and implementation
    • Financing solutions
    • Energy data management and evaluation
    • Energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies

    Requests for one-on-one assistance are reviewed on an on-going basis and evaluated to determine the level of effort TAP can provide based on the following criteria:

    • Near-term and long-term impacts
    • Replicability for other jurisdictions
    • Demonstrated need for federal technical assistance due to lack of other available resources
