NASEO Webinar: Demonstration of the State and Local Planning for Energy (SLOPE) Beta Platform

January 16, 2020, 4:00 - 5:00 PM ET

On Thursday, January 16, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm ET, NASEO's Electricity Committee hosted a demonstration of the State and Local Planning for Energy (SLOPE) Beta Platform. Speakers from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) introduced the SLOPE Beta's components that include electricity and natural gas consumption, energy efficiency potential, renewable energy technical generation potential, and levelized cost of energy, among others. 

The SLOPE Beta Platform, a collaboration between eight DOE technology offices and NREL, is a tool to enable more data-driven state and local energy planning and decision making by integrating dozens of distinct sources of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and (coming soon) sustainable transportation data and analyses into an easy-to-access, online platform. For more information on the SLOPE Beta Platform, please view the DOE Fact Sheet.
