Overview

Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Rhode Island Public Energy Partnership (RIPEP) was a 3-year (2012-2015) collaborative effort to achieve deep energy savings in state and municipal facilities and build a sustained, effective infrastructure for ongoing savings. Led by the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources, RIPEP brought together key state agencies, municipal governments, utilities, and state university partners to:

  • Create a comprehensive inventory of energy consumption in the public sector;
  • Implement energy efficiency measures in approximately 100 facilities to attain an average of 20% energy reduction; and
  • Identify and mitigate barriers to efficiency improvements in the public sector.
