Tools and Trainings

The Department of Energy works to provide Better Plants partners with helpful tools and resources to overcome barriers and identify opportunities to save energy. Through Better Plants, partners receive support from Technical Account Managers (TAMs) who help facilities develop energy management plans, identify energy-saving opportunities, and track energy performance metrics. In addition to technical guidance, Better Plants partners have access to free tools and software, on-site In-Plant Trainings on various energy savings topics, access to technical assistance programs, and more.
