Clean Energy Peer-Learning Cohorts: Apply by May 8!
If you’re interested in engaging with other communities on clean energy strategies, here’s an opportunity worth exploring. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Energy to Communities (C2C) program is now accepting applications for its next set of peer-learning cohorts. Peer-learning cohorts are multi-community engagements that convene regularly for approximately six months to exchange strategies and best practices, learn in a collaborative environment, and workshop policy strategies to overcome challenges around a common clean energy transition topic. Applicants may apply to one (or more) of three cohort topic areas: electric vehicle infrastructure planning and funding, implementing a municipal clean energy procurement strategy, and community inclusion in clean energy planning. Eligible communities may include tribal governments; city, town, or county governments; metropolitan or regional planning organizations; community-based organizations; electric utilities; or other public entities (transit agencies, school districts, housing authorities, etc.).
Applications are due May 8, 2023, and selected participants will begin their engagement in July 2023. Find additional cohort descriptions, eligibility details, and the online application on the C2C peer-learning cohorts website.
Clean Energy to Communities cohorts are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and managed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory with support from the World Resources Institute.
