Minnesota Department of Commerce Division of Energy Resources
Event Description

Hear key findings on a study to understand current barriers low-income households face in accessing or participating in energy programs, and how targeted behavioral programs focused on low-income populations could impact those communities and could help to address existing energy burdens. The team worked with community organizations in Minnesota and used Streetwyze, a multilingual, participatory community mapping tool, to engage with residents across three communities in Minnesota: Saint Paul, St. Cloud, and Willmar.

Slipstream and Streetwyze led the project and will share main themes from the study and a set of program recommendations based on the findings.

This project was supported by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources through the Conservation Applied Research and Development (CARD) program.
