20 07 2016

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy has posted a Notice of Intent to Issue a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled “First Steps Toward Developing Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency on Tribal Lands – 2016” in August or September.
Through the planned FOA, the Office of Indian Energy intends to solicit applications from Indian tribes (including Alaska Native Regional Corporations and Village Corporations) and Tribal Energy Resource Development Organizations to:
• Conduct energy options analyses
• Benchmark baseline energy use and efficiency options
• Develop energy organizations
• Conduct climate resiliency planning
• Establish policy, regulations, and codes to reduce energy use or promote energy develop
• Obtain skills and training related to energy use and development.
Part of a comprehensive strategy for maximizing the development and deployment of energy solutions for the benefit of American Indians and Alaska Natives, the planned FOA will complement the technical assistance the Office offers by providing funding to help tribal communities develop and sustain strategic energy solutions.

Workshop on Strategic Planning for Environmental Sustainability

16 09 2015

Thanks to the Tribal Solid Waste Advisory Network (TSWAN) for the opportunity to present a hands-on workshop in Omak, WA next Tuesday at the 12 Tribes Resort Casino, a new Colville Confederated Tribes facility.  During the workshop we’ll work with representatives of the 29-member Tribes helping them complete an action plan leading to a strategic plan for the environmental sustainability of their respective reservations.  In a previous workshop we shared tools and templates for the planning process that include securing Tribal government buy-in for the activities and results as an early step. We’re looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones during the day-long program.
