Tools & Resources for Energy Management

EDF creates a comprehensive curriculum for every Climate Corps fellow working with host organizations.

Our fellows learn from us in a week-long training session with EDF experts and consultants; and then, each summer, the fellows in return educate us, based on the innovative solutions they’ve found for their host organizations.

EDF believes that by sharing the tools and best practices coming out of Climate Corps every year, we can scale energy efficiencies across industries.
