Updated Tribal Energy Web Site Includes Project Development Guide

April 25, 2007

DOE has updated the Web site for its Tribal Energy Program, which promotes tribal energy sufficiency and fosters employment and economic development on tribal lands throughout the United States. The program, a part of DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), provides financial and technical assistance to tribes for feasibility studies of renewable energy development on tribal lands. It also offers assistance to tribes for the initial steps toward renewable energy and energy efficiency development. The updated Tribal Energy Program Web site reflects the look of the EERE Web site and provides easier access to information about DOE-funded projects on tribal lands. See the Tribal Energy Program Web site and the "Projects on Tribal Lands" Web page.

The updated Web site also incorporates the "Guide to Tribal Energy Development," a subsite designed to help tribes develop clean energy projects on their lands. The online guide is chock-full of information that could benefit anyone pursuing a renewable energy project. See the Guide to Tribal Energy Development.
