Purdue Extension Leads Indiana Renewable Energy Initiative

By Andi Anderson

Purdue Extension is at the forefront of a transformative initiative aimed at guiding Indiana communities in embracing renewable energy solutions. With renewable energy projects increasingly seeking space in rural areas, Purdue Extension's expertise becomes invaluable in navigating the complexities of this evolving landscape.

Through a three-year, $1.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, Purdue Extension leads the Indiana Renewable Energy Planning and Technical Engagement Collaborative. This collaborative serves as a vital hub, providing essential resources for communities to evaluate, plan, and make informed decisions regarding renewable energy initiatives.

With a focus on data-driven decision-making, the collaborative assists communities in understanding the economic, environmental, and social impacts of renewable energy development. From updating outdated ordinances to facilitating community engagement processes, Purdue Extension empowers local decision-makers to navigate the renewable energy transition effectively.

Moreover, the initiative fosters collaboration among diverse stakeholders, ensuring that all voices are heard in the decision-making process. By offering technical assistance, educational resources, and certification support, Purdue Extension equips communities with the tools they need to thrive in a changing energy landscape.

As Indiana transitions to a more diverse fuel mix, Purdue Extension's efforts are timely and essential. Through collaboration, education, and informed decision-making, communities can harness the potential of renewable energy while shaping a sustainable future for generations to come.
