Rapid Deployment Energy Efficiency Toolkit
Thu, 14 May 2009 13:37:10 GMT
The Rapid Deployment Energy Efficiency (RDEE) Toolkit provides detailed program design and implementation guides for 10 broadly applicable energy efficiency programs. The RDEE Toolkit helps all entities choose successful programs as they advance energy efficiency program funding opportunities through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. The Toolkit focuses on programs that have extensive, proven field experience, along with documentation on program design, program cost, and results. If implemented as directed, these programs should produce clear, measurable, and predictable energy savings and jobs. The Toolkit is being developed through a joint effort of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), building upon technical information provided by the Leadership Group of the National Action Plan on Energy Efficiency. Includes links to the RDEE Planning Guide and RDEE Implementation Guide.
