EERE Seeks Stakeholder Feedback on Necessary Resources to Expand Renewable Energy Deployment

EERE Seeks Stakeholder Feedback on Necessary Resources to Expand Renewable Energy Deployment

Date: 12/17/2015

The Energy Department's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) issued a request for information (RFI) to assess the level of interest among state and regional-level entities (including governmental, industrial, and academic organizations) in including renewable energy deployment into their energy strategies and in identifying challenge areas to address. For purposes of this RFI, renewable energy includes solar, wind, hydropower, and geothermal technologies. Renewable energy targets and strategic plans have been set at the state level for many years, sometimes including technology-specific plans and programs. As Renewable Portfolio Standards sunset in many states and as compliance requirements are launched for greenhouse gas reduction, states may wish to establish or re-evaluate targets for renewable electricity deployment and/or consider the most beneficial paths for achieving those goals. This is solely an RFI, not a funding opportunity announcement. The RFI submission deadline is January 13, 2016.
