WI SEEPI Advances Bioenergy Deployment

The Wisconsin State Energy Extension Partnership Initiative (WI SEEPI) is a collaborative project between the Wisconsin State Energy Office and University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension. The objectives of WI SEEPI are to: (1) increase state and local community policy development; (2) increase the understanding of energy systems and renewable energy sources by local governments and local businesses (farms); (3) create demonstration projects that address efficient energy use and conservation; (4) increase on-farm agricultural conservation, energy audits, and energy use in the production of food and fiber; and (5) increase biofuels and bioeconomy systems support. WI SEEPI creates an enduring partnership that provides a clearinghouse of information on conservation, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and bioenergy opportunities; technical assistance for local units of government and locally owned businesses (including farmers); facilitation assistance on the creation of energy planning processes; and information about enduring funding sources for energy projects. Other major stakeholders in Wisconsin will also engage with WI SEEPI to improve energy awareness and create transformational community change in the State of Wisconsin.
