Energy Efficiency Programs in West Virginia: A Partnership Approach
MetadataShow full item record
West Virginia's successful energy efficiency program relies on the close working relationship between the West Virginia Division of Energy and West Virginia University's energy efficiency programs, Industries of the Future - West Virginia and WVU Industrial Assessment Center. These organizations work together to conduct the State's energy efficiency assistance programs that include R&D, assessments, and outreach, identify potential clients, and offer a wide range of services. The partnership has the capability to provide these services to facilities ranging in size from small commercial businesses to large manufacturing facilities. The partners have affiliations not only within industry but also with industry organizations, utilities, and national laboratories. This range of services creates a synergistic relationship that allows the WV team to obtain competitive awards that benefit the stakeholders. This paper will focus on how West Virginia has a successful industrial energy efficiency program with limited state funding and no surcharges on utility bills.
