This webinar will highlight the findings of a newly released ACEEE report on how energy efficiency program implementers reach nonresidential and community-serving institutions in low-income areas. These groups may include nonprofits, schools, local government buildings, locally owned businesses, medical facilities, shelters, and community centers. The ACEEE report surveys 39 programs that serve these institutions and provides insights on design, delivery, and evaluation trends, as well as policy considerations.
The webinar will also include two program case study examples, including Energy Outreach Colorado’s Nonprofit Energy Efficiency Program and the City of Minneapolis’s Green Cost Share Program. The program implementers will discuss how their programs reach community-serving institutions in low-income communities through program design, delivery, partnerships, and key successes.
