Clean Air Program’s Technical Assistance Offering

The Colorado Energy Office (CEO) has partnered with CLEAResult, an experienced energy efficiency and decarbonization solutions provider, to conduct Scope 1 Emissions Assessments. Scope 1 emissions are direct greenhouse (GHG) emissions that occur from sources that an organization controls or owns (e.g., emissions associated with fuel combustion in boilers, furnaces, vehicles). By participating in a Clean Air Scope 1 Emissions Assessments, you are contributing to Colorado's efforts to combat climate change and taking proactive steps to maximize the impact of your energy efficiency investments.

Private manufacturing and industrial entities and local governments that engage in an industrial process in Colorado are eligible to apply. See more about how to apply in the “Submit an application” section below.

Schedule an assessment

If accepted to the program, a CLEAResult representative will contact you to schedule an on-site assessment of your facilities. Collecting your operation’s historic resource usage data is a critical first step, including (where applicable):

  • Electricity usage 
  • Natural gas usage 
  • Propane usage 
  • Other fossil fuel usage (e.g. diesel or gasoline)
  • CO2 usage 
  • Water usage 

This data, coupled with the on-site facility audit, will allow CLEAResult to identify opportunities for efficiency improvements in your facility.

Report delivery

After conducting a technical energy assessment, CLEAResult will deliver a summary report about your facility. This report will detail current performance metrics of your facility, recommended efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions reduction opportunities, and projected resource usage and cost saving potential.

Alongside your assessment report, CLEAResult will help you assess available financing options to pay for the implementation of efficiency measures.
