NAESCO partners with ACEEE to develop training and educational material for Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) grantees

The DOE recently announced a revamp to the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Blueprints Cohorts, a key technical assistance program offered to the nearly 2,700 state, Tribal, and local governments throughout the country eligible for EECBG funding. The DOE selected ACEEE to lead the effort of ramping up the support offered to communities through the Blueprint Cohorts. NAESCO, along with peer organizations, has partnered with ACEEE to develop and administer training and educational materials, such as training sessions, workshops, and practical guides, to local governments and Tribes to help them troubleshoot challenges and maximize project impact as they implement EECBG-funded projects.

“Energy service companies (ESCOs) are key partners to local and tribal governments, designing, constructing, and implementing solutions to upgrade building infrastructure. NAESCO is honored to partner with ACEEE and peer organizations to ensure EECBG grantees have the resources and support needed to implement emissions reduction, energy efficiency, and renewable energy projects.” - National Association of Energy Service Companies (NAESCO) Executive Director Timothy Unruh
