Statewide Focus Group

We invite you to participate in SPEER’s Local Government Community-Engagement Assessment of Interest and Resource Needs. More details can be found below. 

SPEER in partnership with the Texas State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) has launched a statewide Texas Energy Focus Group to assess local government and public sector energy needs. Apply now and provide valuable insight into important issues such as Texas’ energy equity, resiliency, and sustainability to produce an understanding of what cities and local governments find essential for efficiency and energy strategies and programs. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with cities and schools across the state and aid in creating future programs and tools. Meetings will ideally be in person; however, call-in/virtual options may also be provided based on recent national and state guidelines.

The participants in the focus groups will include:
 – Cities
 – Counties

 – Higher education (community colleges and universities)
 – Council of governments
 – Community-based non-profits

The findings will be compiled into a report provided to all participants and SECO.  More information and application of interest for the focus group can be found here.


At SPEER, our sole purpose is to help you and your organization move toward a more energy-efficient end-state. Our team supports a robust member network with training, peer support, and advocacy. Join us!
