We operate the Department of Energy Technical Assistance Partnership that does unbiased site analysis for CHP. We also work to educate installers, site owners, and legislators of the benefits of efficient, economic, reliable CHP.
Our solar energy work encompasses bringing together business associations across the northeast to set common state policy goals that forwards the integration of solar energy to the utility grid.
With support from the Energy Foundation and other Funders, the Pace Energy and Climate Center has been working on RGGI development, implementation, operations, and policy for several years, going back to RGGI’s inception.
Low and Moderate Income Energy Work
We work to bridge the gaps between electric utiltiy, grid modernization, and LMI communities to bring equality of access and reliability.
Since the Center’s inception, it has had strong involvement in international energy issues, and in recent times, in climate change mitigation and adaption, focusing on energy-related climate change solutions.
Electric Vehicle sales are projected to increase steadily in the next decade. Our work focuses on accessibility and policy that takes advantage of beneficial grid attributes EVs have to offer.
