The DOE TAP provides state and local officials with quick, short-term access to experts at DOE?s national laboratories for assistance with cross-cutting renewable energy and energy efficiency policies and programs that are not currently covered by an existing DOE program. Individualized assistance is available in five eligible areas: (1) system benefit charges or other ratepayer-funded utility efficiency and renewable programs, (2) renewable or efficiency portfolio standards, (3) use of clean energy technologies to help states and localities address air emissions, (4) use of renewable energy on state and local public lands, and (5) disaster relief, mitigation, and planning. Currently, technical assistance is available from three participating laboratories: the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).

This record is superseded by:Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)
