Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham announced that the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) State Energy Program (SEP) will award a total of $44,535,000 to all states, territories, and the District of Columbia to assist with their energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.

The awards will “improve the energy efficiency of transportation and buildings, and provide public education to improve energy efficiency statewide,” Abraham said.

The SEP awards will be administered by the respective states’ energy offices. SEP funds have improved the energy efficiency of more than 69,000 buildings nationwide and have annually supported about 6,300 jobs. States leverage an average of $4 for every $1 in SEP funding through a 20% matching contribution and other funding sources, enhancing the program’s effectiveness.

The State Energy Program provides formula-based funding to states to design and carry out their own programs to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power.
