Energy Efficiency Guide

The Energy Efficiency Guide is a tool designed to help Tribes build their own energy efficiency guidelines according to Tribal values and capacities. Existing state codes and standards provide minimum guidelines for reducing energy use. Tribes often go beyond basic requirements, preferring higher standards. This tool will be updated with user feedback. Please let us know how we can improve this Guide.

Energy Efficiency Codes are drilled down by federal, individual state, and other nationally and internationally recognized institutions.

Beyond Codes provide examples of how Tribes may improve and adapt on existing codes for their region.

Energy Efficiency in Indian Country is a list of current energy efficiency projects taking place on Tribal land and/or with Tribal owned enterprises.

Energy Efficiency Tools assess and manage energy use. Includes energy audit guides and resources for facilities and homes.

Technical Assistance provide links to websites for additional information on energy efficiency.

Funding may direct Tribes to potential funding sources for energy efficiency projects.

Additional Resources include papers and studies that will help to clarify energy efficiency concepts.
