Energy Center Board approves rules for programs to help advance projects in support of the statewide energy plan
Nov. 7, 2018 (DES MOINES, IOWA) – The Iowa Energy Center (IEC) Board at its quarterly meeting today approved draft administrative rules for two programs designed to inspire innovative research and pilot projects in support of the Iowa Energy Plan objectives. The board also reviewed the status of grant projects transitioned to the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) from Iowa State University (ISU) with the IEC in October 2017.
“Iowa is an energy leader, and to maintain that status, we need to encourage activities in the priority areas identified by the statewide Energy Plan,” said Tim Whipple, IEC Board Chair and General Counsel for the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities. “We’re looking forward to seeing interesting and innovative projects come forward when these programs launch in 2019.”
