Ready to Go: Opportunities for Cities and States to Deploy Federal Funding to Advance Clean Energy and Equity


Thursday, December 09, 2021
1:00 p.m.– 2:00 p.m. EST




American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy


Recent and pending federal funding initiatives, including the American Rescue Plan Act and bipartisan infrastructure bill, may provide billions of dollars that can help cities and states reach their goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and advance equity in their communities. Governments can learn from example programs to efficiently and effectively leverage these generational opportunities.

Join ACEEE to learn more about how your government can strengthen its new or expanded energy programs. Attendees will hear lessons shared in a new ACEEE toolkit that lays out guiding principles for governments, as well as 17 strong programs that can serve as models for new or expanded efforts. The lead author of the toolkit will highlight key takeaways from this research.

Officials from Connecticut and Washington, D.C. will share insights from their programs and how they are planning to leverage federal funding, and a representative from Elevate will discuss how governments can ensure that programs are deployed equitably to advance energy justice.
