Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service Energy Efficiency Awareness and Action

  • Fehr, Robert (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


The Energy Efficiency Awareness and Action (EEAA) program will result from a long-standing, successful partnership between the Department for Energy Development and Independence (DEDI), the primary applicant, and the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service (UKCES). In recognition of Extension’s ability to deliver information and services at the community level, DEDI has a long history of working with UKCES through the State Energy Program. Since 2003 the DEDI and the UKCES have enjoyed a solid partnership that helps educate Kentuckians about energy efficiency and renewable energy throughout the state. Working together these agencies have developed numerous programs, studies and outreach materials designed to improve the energy efficiency of Kentucky homes, communities, schools and businesses. The UKCES Principal Investigator for this project is Dr. Robert Fehr. Dr. Fehr is Professor Emeritus of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering at the University of Kentucky. He has written extensively on energy efficiency systems, contributes to local and national organizations on energy efficiency and has developed web-based applications aimed at assessing energy efficiency. The primary objectives of the project are to expand and deepen the existing DEDI and UKCES partnership to form the Kentucky Energy Extension Partnership by training Extension agents to deliver energy efficiency information and solutions in anticipation of increased demand for these services as energy prices rise; the focus will be on fostering the adoption of energy efficiency in the residential and commercial sectors through the Energy Efficiency Awareness and Action (EEAA) program.
