Our Work is Integrative and Collaborative….

When IRESN took up the topic of “integrated renewable energy systems”, we imagined an expanding renewable integration process driven by community-scale and building-scale renewable energy systems as well by utility-scale power plants.  Now, a decade later, the accelerating deployment of new local clean energy technologies is creating a real, urgent and daunting need for local energy collaboration.  In 2018 we completed an assessment of policies states, energy utilities, and local governments could adopt to accelerate collaboration.  A project advisory committee supported the effort by identifying barriers to local energy collaboration and examples of early, successful collaborations.  In 2019 we are reaching out to local energy collaboration stakeholders and facilitators, including national and international NGOs, universities while drilling down to provide experience-based recommendations.  As we engage with  other active facilitators of local energy collaboration, we’ll post articles, blogs and links to collaborative successes and experience.
