EERE Success Story – Pennsylvania Clean Energy Program Plan
Learn more about the first Clean Energy Program (CEP) plan for Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Energy Programs Office (EPO), which serves as the State Energy Office for the Commonwealth, recently published its first comprehensive Clean Energy Program (CEP) Plan. The CEP Plan is a landmark publication that identifies opportunities and strategies for EPO to support the achievement of Pennsylvania’s ambitious climate and clean energy goals. Prior to the release of the Plan, EPO had not published a comprehensive analysis of its programs and short- and long-term clean energy plans. The development of the Plan was funded in part by a formula grant from U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) State Energy Program (SEP).
The Plan summarizes the Commonwealth’s energy policies and EPO programs, recommends new actions to take over the next one to three years, and explores various methods for anticipating future energy trends and mitigating disruptions. Critically, the goals and recommendations laid out in the Plan align with EERE’s key goals of decarbonizing the economy, promoting energy equity, and supporting workforce development for the clean energy and energy efficiency sectors.
