Technical Assistance Resources for State, Local, and Tribal Officials

The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) supports the efforts of state, local, and tribal officials to develop and implement programs by providing resources in five key priority areas critical to taking clean energy efforts to scale. For each priority area, the Solution Center provides general education materials, case studies, tools for decision-making, and protocols, such as how-to guides and model documents. Additional information on specific intergovernmental programs—the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), the State Energy Program (SEP), and the Tribal Energy Program (TEP)—is available on the Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program Office home page.
