Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency

The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency, or DSIRE, is a comprehensive source of information on state, local, utility and federal incentives and policies that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. Established in 1995 and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, DSIRE is an ongoing project of the N.C. Solar Center and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council. Users can search for state or federal incentives, as well as benefit from other useful aspects of the website.

One such useful aspect of the website is the Library, which includes selected reports, technical papers, articles and presentations authored by the DSIRE staff. Related publications that were co-authored with colleagues in academia, government and the private sector are also included.

Another useful aspect of the website are the Links provided to National Organizations, Federal Resources, State Organizations, Regional Organizations, and International Organizations.

Overall, this is an incredibly useful source for finding information and resources related to energy efficiency and green business.
