The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides technical assistance to state utility regulators who want to explore greater use of clean energy for its economic and environmental benefits. EPA technical assistance allows states to learn from each other and pursue best practice policies and programmes for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and clean distributed generation such as combined heat and power. Assistance is provided directly to individual state utility commissions and in partnership with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) through their Energy Resources and the Environment (ERE) Committee. In February 2005, the EPA launched the EPA-State Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Projects. This is a joint initiative between EPA, the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), and individual state utility commissions was designed to explore approaches that deliver significant energy cost savings and other benefits through greater use of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and clean distributed generation.
