The Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy supports energy efficiency and conservation programs that help reduce energy use and its impact on the state’s environment and public health. The Division supports the use of renewable energy by homeowners and businesses through grant funding, incentives, and technical guidance. Delaware partners with the state’s utilities to
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) provides grants through the Energy Efficiency Industrial (E2I) program to help large-scale energy users make their operations more energy efficient through innovative upgrades.
The Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS) Workgroup came together in 2009 to assist the planning process and implementation of energy reduction objectives and quantitative targets for Delaware. The workgroup submitted its report to the Secretary of DNREC in June of 2011.
Background The workgroup was established in the Energy
The Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy supports energy efficiency and conservation programs that help reduce energy use and its impact on the state’s environment and public health. Every investment in energy efficiency helps increase productivity and profits for business, reduces the production of harmful greenhouse gasses, lowers energy costs, and improves the value and
Delaware has adopted national and international energy conservation standards to guide statewide rules and regulations for the building sector. DNREC’s Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy issues and regularly updates regulations based on these standards, which come from the International Code Council (ICC) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) provides grants through the Energy Efficiency Investment Fund (EEIF) to help commercial and industrial customers replace aging, inefficient equipment and systems with energy efficient alternatives.
Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification (EM&V) is the process by which energy professionals make sure energy efficiency programs and projects are saving energy and money as they were designed to. It helps energy professionals assess how programs are working, and decide what energy-saving strategies to pursue in the future. DNREC develops the regulations that guide EM&V
Meetings of the Energy Efficiency Advisory Council and its subcommittees are posted on the Delaware Public Meeting Calendar. Collected meeting materials are posted here for council members and the public.
The Delaware Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) helps Delawareans reduce energy loss and cost through energy efficiency programs. The EEAC is a collaborative panel of representatives that develops statewide programs to increase energy efficiency, reduce energy usage, and lower consumer energy costs.
The Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy uses an integrated approach of applied science, education, policy development, and incentives to address Delaware’s climate, energy, and coastal challenges. Division Mission
