The Department of Energy, through the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, assists states by providing planning assistance, data, and funding for state and community programs.
The Weatherization Assistance Program provides information on grant money available to states, which states can, in turn, award to local agencies to perform weatherization services. The State Energy Program provides funding to states to design and carry out their own energy efficiency and renewable energy programs. The outcome of this DOE funding is a rapid and inventive deployment of new energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. The Clean Cities program provides information on how to build the local alternative fuel market which, in turn, improves air quality, stimulates the local economy, and increases public awareness of alternative fuels.
Additionally, the Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy contains financial and regulatory incentives available from each of the 50 states designed to promote the application of renewable energy technologies. The EIA State Energy Profile provides state energy statistics at a glance, including consumption and prices for petroleum, natural gas, coal, electricity, and nuclear power.
