Tennessee Energy Education Initiative

The Tennessee Energy Education Initiative’s (TEEI) goal is to promote awareness of energy efficiency, renewable energy, energy management, and sustainable transportation options to individuals and organizations throughout the State. As part of this initiative, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s Office of Energy Programs (TDEC OEP) collaborates with various stakeholders to support the execution of targeted outreach events and to provide technical assistance to the residential, commercial, industrial, and/or public energy sectors. In addition, through TEEI, OEP shares energy information via social media, targeted email blasts, monthly newsletters, and on OEP’s website. With regard to web content, TDEC OEP is currently in the process of transitioning the content on the website, which was originally launched in 2013 with State Energy Program (SEP) American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding, onto the TDEC OEP website, so that all related TEEI information and content will be housed on a single website moving forward. TEEI is funded by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), U.S. Department of Energy, under Award Number DE-EE0006997.
