RI Public Energy Partnership
Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, RIPEP is a 3-year collaborative effort to achieve deep energy savings in municipal and state facilities and build a sustained, effective infrastructure for ongoing savings. Led by the RI Office of Energy Resources, RIPEP brings together key state agencies, municipal governments, utilities, and state university partners to:
- Create a comprehensive inventory of energy consumption in the public sector;
- Help approximately 100 facilities implement energy efficiency projects and measures to attain an average of 20% energy savings; and
- Identify and mitigate barriers to efficiency improvements in the public sector.
