The Michigan Energy Office perodically seeks out Requests for Proposals (RFP) regarding energy issues facing Michigan residents or offers loans to residents and businesses for selected energy efficiency related topics.
The Michigan Energy Office has been involved with Community Energy Management (CEM) services since 2015. The program helps municipal leaders and staff reduce energy waste through development of sound energy policies and programs. Through CEM services, municipalities have created systematic methods to analyze usage of public buildings, engage public participation, and implement strategies which reduce waste.
Local governments who pursue community energy management are well-positioned to proactively plan for and implement strategic energy waste reduction, renewable energy, and related sustainability efforts. This results in greater potential for monetary savings from reduced operating costs, local economic activity, and positions local government as leaders-by-example for residents, businesses, and other organizations within the broader community.
Retired engineers, scientists, and other professionals are available through the Retired Engineer Technical Assistance Program (RETAP) to assist small manufacturers in Michigan with pollution prevention, water conservation and energy efficiency. RETAP services are always objective and free of charge.
The Michigan Energy Office, with grant support from the U.S. Department of Energy, is working to create a stakeholder- and research-driven roadmap that aligns electric utility business interests and customer behavior with public policy goals. The project is directed by a multiagency steering committee, informed by a multisector stakeholder group, and supported with internal agency staff and external partners.
The Clean Energy Roadmap is a collaborative effort between Michigan and Northeast Ohio to accelerate the region’s clean energy sector. The overall project goal was to identify and advance energy efficiency building technologies, products, services and clean energy manufacturing in the region.
