For many state and local governments establishing energy and environmental goals, the ability to make data-driven decisions about cost-effective opportunities is hindered by the data itself. Dispersed, unintegrated, and sometimes inaccessible data makes data-driven energy planning too expensive or time-intensive to pursue, preventing them from achieving their goals. To address this issue, DOE developed the State and Local Planning for Energy (SLOPE) Platform, an online tool that integrates dozens of distinct sources of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainable transportation data and analysis into an easy-to-access platform. This webinar will demonstrate SLOPE’s functionality and provide examples of SLOPE’s application in assisting state and local energy planning.
Speakers: Megan Day, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Matthew Donath, City of Milwaukee
