Energy Waste Reduction Collaborative

On December 21, 2016, Public Act 342 was signed into law. This Act, known as the Clean and Renewable Energy and Energy Waste Reduction Act, amends Michigan's 2008 energy law, Act 295. The work of the EWR Collaborative (formerly named EO Collaborative under PA 295) will continue under the new law and will focus on collaborative discussions from a varied stakeholder group consisting of state government, representatives of utilities, cooperative and municipal load serving entities, as well as contractors, program evaluators and implementers, energy efficiency advocates, low income representatives, and others.

The goals of the EWR Collaborative continue to include the following:

  • Make recommendations for improving EWR Plans for all providers.
  • Provide program evaluation support and develop any needed re-design and improvements to energy efficiency programs.
  • Update and refine the MEMD on the basis of actual experience.
  • Promote economic development and job creation in Michigan by providing a forum to connect Michigan manufacturers, suppliers and vendors with EWR programs.
