On March 27th, 2019 at 3:00 pm ET, NASEO will host a webinar to discuss the importance of utilizing data and modeling to drive state energy planning processes. Over the next year, many states will be creating or updating plans; the effective integration of data collection and analysis in the plan development and stakeholder engagement process can increase the likelihood of success and impact. This webinar will highlight how data and modeling can and has be used to help develop energy plans, policies, and programs, including a particular focus on the role of energy efficiency. We encourage you to come prepared with questions, thoughts, and comments for speakers.
