Develop an Implementation Model

Download State Energy Program Notice 14-2 to learn how to create an implementation model.

The State Energy Program (SEP) partners with states, territories, and the District of Columbia to provide support during the implementation of award-funded energy initiatives and programs.

As part of the SEP Competitive Awards process, state recipients share information with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and each other in a peer-to-peer facilitated discussion. These discussions focus on the challenges the state encounters, how they overcome those challenges, and barriers to implementing effective programs.

This collaborative process allows federal and state-level decision makers to learn and improve the efficacy and impact of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs. View a list of resources created by states through SEP competitive awards.

Implementation Models

One way DOE requires SEP Competitive Award recipients to share information is through the development of best practice guidelines known as an implementation model.

Implementation models identify solutions that address key barriers to energy efficiency within the state and detail the approach the state took to create a sustainable solution. These guidelines must be a replicable solution for the deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy in other states.
