Dispersed, unintegrated, and sometimes inaccessible data can make data-driven energy planning too expensive or time-intensive for many state and local governments to pursue. To confront this issue, the State and Local Planning for Energy (SLOPE) Platform, a collaboration between DOE and NREL, integrates and delivers data on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainable transportation into an easy-to-access online platform, helping enable data-driven state and local energy planning.
Watch this webinar to learn how New Mexico is using SLOPE to identify clean energy opportunities to inform its Grid Modernization Roadmap Project and learn how SLOPE’s new transportation data can help your jurisdiction answer questions such as:
- How might electric vehicle adoption change my community’s electricity demand over time?
- Is the amount of travel via personal vehicles expected to decrease by 2050 for residents in my state?
- How might the number of battery electric, conventional gasoline, hybrid gasoline, and plug-in hybrid personal vehicles change in the future?
