Clean Power & Industrial Efficiency

DOE’s Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs)

The Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs) provide direct technical assistance to industrial facilities and other large energy users with identifying and implementing technology options for achieving site-specific energy objectives. Technical assistance for end users can include a broad range of services in support of onsite energy project deployment, from the earliest stages of screening for multi-technology solutions, to the end stages of post-installation operation. The Onsite Energy TAPs also conduct outreach and engage with policymakers, utilities, and other key stakeholders to accelerate pathways for integration of clean onsite energy technologies. Additional activities include developing public tools and resources, sharing best practices, and building partnerships that drive decarbonization across the U.S. industrial sector.
