For anyone working to accelerate the growth of advanced energy through public policy, the frustration is familiar. State energy legislation and regulatory paperwork are hard to find and new developments harder to follow. Documents and records are buried in outmoded websites with confusing interfaces, with every state’s different. Staying on top of state energy policy has meant searching state by state and keeping track of information manually with lists and spreadsheets. Following new developments in more than one state has been a nightmare – and a big expense.

 

Today, AEE is pleased to offer a solution. PowerSuite is the only fully integrated set of online tools for tracking energy legislation and regulatory proceedings across all 50 states. Developed by our in-house software team, PowerSuite is available only from AEE.
