Massachusetts Energy and Environmental Affairs Announces Four-Year, $6 Million Grant to Form a New University of Massachusetts Amherst Energy Extension Initiative

Massachusetts Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) announced a four-year, $6 million grant to form a new University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) Energy Extension Initiative. It will serve as a resource on renewable and clean energy options for cities and towns, industry, hospitals, colleges and universities, nonprofits and other organizations across the Commonwealth. The initiative will help municipalities as well as organizations across the Commonwealth cut their energy use, create jobs and protect the environment. The UMass Amherst Energy Extension Initiative will promote adoption of renewable energy technology and energy efficiency activities across the state. Approximately $2 million of the grant, funded by the Department of Energy Resources (DOER), will go to expand services at the U.S. Department of Energy Northeast Clean Energy Application Center, while $4 million will go to develop an energy outreach and extension-type program that draws on the expertise of UMass Amherst. The campus's existing Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (CEERE) will administratively host the new initiative. After four years of support, the initiative is expected to be self-sustaining through user fees, partnering on patentable intellectual property opportunities and other avenues. UMass Amherst is expected to hire two new extension professors and some additional engineering support staff for the program. Specifically, the new initiative will mobilize information on the latest technologies, provide demonstration and community-scale testbed projects to identify and lower the financial, social, technical and political barriers to wider deployment and use of renewable energy, energy efficiency, renewable thermal energy, and combined heat and power practices in Massachusetts.
