The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center are excited to announce that a new, modernized DSIRE is under construction. The new version of DSIRE will offer significant improvements over the current version, including expanded data accessibility and an array of new tools for site users. The new DSIRE site will be available in December 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new version of DSIRE but are also maintaining the content of the current version of DSIRE. Thank you for your continued support and patience during this transition. We hope you are as excited for December as we are!

Note: The Community Conservation Challenge (CCC) program is accepting applications for the 2015 program year.

The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) is offering grants under the CCC  program. Non-residential entities may apply to receive $25,000-$100,000 for community energy conservation projects. Projects must be located in Indiana and must use commercially-available technologies. The project must be visible to the public and have at least one community partner, though priority will be given to projects with support from multiple organizations. A cost share is not required but applicants are encouraged to leverage other funds in lieu of cost share.

Applicants may apply for either an Energy Efficiency/Renewable Energy grant or an Alternative Fuel Vehicles grant.  Eligible projects include projects that demonstrate measurable improvements in energy efficiency or renewable energy, projects that result in a reduction in energy demand or fuel consumption, or projects that implement an energy recycling process. Eligible technologies include alternative fuel on-road vehicles, biomass, energy efficiency including HVAC, lighting, and traffic signals, combined heat and power, geothermal, solar, solar hot water, waste management and recycling, water systems, and wind.

Applications are limited to one per applicant, and necessary materials are located on the program web site.
