Texas Local Government Energy Manager Survey

Please consider completing this 5 minute survey before June 18, 2020

The purpose of this brief survey is to determine the distribution of energy management responsibilities among local government entities in the State of Texas. The goal of this survey is to generate a broader understanding of local government energy managers to facilitate information sharing regarding free energy management resources available from the State Energy Conservation Office.




Last week SPEER launched our new monthly segment SPEER 5 in 5 where we ask one expert five questions in five minutes. 5 in 5 is intended to celebrate the excellent energy efficiency, sustainability, resilience, and policy work being done by SPEER's members and partners throughout Texas and Oklahoma. 

Our first 5 in 5 is my interview with Sue Alvarez, Assistant Director of the City of Dallas's Office of Environmental Quality & Sustainability
