District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility (DC SEU)

Since March 2011, alongside the District Department of Environment, PEER has assisted in the development of the District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility (DC SEU).  PEER’s role is to provide leadership for community engagement strategy and implementation, key assistance with policy development, and analysis/planning functions for the DC SEU. The goal of the DC SEU is to reduce per capita energy consumption, increase renewable energy generating capacity, reduce growth of peak electricity energy demand, improve the efficiency of low-housing, reduce the growth of energy demand of the largest energy users and increase the number of green-collar jobs in DC.
