DOE's Onsite Energy Program

Technical Assistance and resources for industrial facilities and large energy users.

Achieve site-specific energy objectives

Onsite Energy Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs)

To assist the US Department of Energy’s Onsite Energy Program, Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs) provide direct technical assistance to industrial facilities and other large energy users with identifying and implementing technology options for achieving site-specific energy objectives. 

Technical assistance for end users can include a broad range of services in support of onsite energy project deployment, from the earliest stages of screening for multi-technology solutions, to the end stages of post-installation operation.
