Online Tool Provides Local Energy Data

    New Online Tool Provides State and Local Energy Data at Your

    The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, with help from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), has launched a new website that provides state and local decision makers easy access to a wealth of energy data specific to their location. The resources and data provided can be used to support strategic energy planning processes and deployment of clean energy projects. 

    By entering a city and state or zip code into the State and Local Energy Data (SLED) online tool, users can see how their current electricity prices compare to the state and national averages, learn about applicable policies and incentives that could affect clean energy projects in their state, find available renewable energy resources, get details on alternative transportation fuel costs, and much more—all in one location. SLED, which replaces the Community Renewable Energy Deployment Project Development tool, aggregates data from a wide variety of sources including the Energy Information Administration, the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency, the Alternative Fuels Data Center, and NREL. 

    Watch the SLED video for an overview of the tool as well as an example of how the City of Milwaukee anticipates leveraging it for future planning efforts.
