The Tennessee Advanced Energy Business Council, in partnership with the Tennessee Energy Education Initiative, has released the Tennessee Advanced Energy Asset Inventory —a comprehensive report detailing the state's energy-related resources.
The inventory is designed to educate stakeholders about Tennessee’s assets so that the state can gain its share of the global $1 trillion advanced energy market. It also serves as a tool to aid organizations and businesses implement energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy management projects.
“The sheer quantity of advanced energy assets in Tennessee is impressive and should be seized upon by businesses and organizations across the state to grow our economy,” Tom Ballard (pictured), Tennessee Advanced Energy Business Council president, said in a release. “The vast amount of information about these resources can sometimes be overwhelming. By consolidating everything into one accessible report, we’ve made it easier for people to connect assets with opportunities, so they can collaborate and accelerate the growth of Tennessee's advanced energy economy.”
Funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act through the U.S. Department of Energy and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Office of Energy Programs, the Tennessee Energy Education Initiative is coordinated by Pathway Lending and supported by energy-focused organizations across the state.
