|Residential Energy Efficiency and Beneficial Electrification Task Force
|NASEO’s Residential Energy Efficiency and Beneficial Electrification Task Force was formed by State Energy Offices to prepare for two new residential energy efficiency programs – Home Energy Performance-Based Whole-House Rebates Program and High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Program – created by the Inflation Reduction Act. The functions of this Task Force are to develop principles for U.S. Department of Energy requirements that will be associated with these programs, draft program templates for State Energy Offices with deployment options and to serve as the space for State Energy Offices, Federal agencies, and private-market actors to discuss these programs.
|Rural Energy Working Group
|The Rural Energy Working Group addresses key issues impacting energy use on rural lands and agricultural operations. Key focus areas include options for renewable energy development on rural lands, efficient energy and water use in agricultural operations, and geographic equity in developing energy efficiency programming.
