Over the last year, we have been involved in a project to develop a US Community Energy Projects Database and Website, in collaboration with Dr. Sharon Klein, Economics Department, University of Maine. Dr. Klein collected the initial data set, and Katrina Stinson, a CS undergraduate, built the database and website. We soft- launched this spring.

The US Community Energy Projects website is a centralized location for sharing information about community energy projects across the United States. It began as a compilation of publicly available information on renewable energy projects (solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydropower) with a “group” or “community” element. Now that the website and associated database are publicly available, the group hopes people with direct knowledge of projects will add/correct information to keep the database growing and current. CWRU renewable energy projects are listed.

Please feel free to share!
