NCCETC Introduces Energy and Sustainability Services
Suite of services aim to optimize sustainability and energy-related objectives for business, industry, government and utilities
The NC Clean Energy Technology Center (NCCETC) introduces its Energy and Sustainability Services (ESS) – a suite of services from the Center aimed at optimizing sustainability and energy-related objectives for business, industry, government and utilities.
The Center’s Energy and Sustainability Services can help organizations plan, evaluate, implement and report on a host of energy-related priorities through a variety of cross-cutting services. Subject matter experts at the Center provide unbiased, data-driven, and technical fee-for-service energy solutions based on the client’s specific needs. NCCETC’s team includes experts in clean energy, renewables, transportation, policy and workforce training, that work to provide comprehensive solutions.
“The individual services within this suite are not necessarily new, but the fact that we are now able to leverage our assistance programs across the Center using our collective clean energy expertise means we can create outcomes and results that meet the diverse needs of our clients in a more seamless way,” said Steve Kalland, NCCETC Executive Director.
