To assist DEED members in submitting successful grant applications, we're offering a webinar to help you put the 'research' into your project proposal.

Webinar Description

To assist members in submitting successful grant applications, we're offering a webinar to help you put the 'research' into your project proposal. The research aspect of DEED grant applications is extremely important in order to lead to insights and learning that can be reapplied by DEED members; as such, when it's missing or inadequate, the result can be a vote of “no funding” for the proposal.

In this webinar DEED directors, Liz Jambor, Austin Energy, and Rachel Huang, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, will share knowledge they've gained from decades of experience developing, directing, and participating in utility research projects as well as evaluating project proposals while serving on the DEED Board. You will learn how to identify research considerations that should be incorporated into a project, such as determining the need for data collection, recognizing and avoiding data bias, accounting for variables, and evaluating the need for a cost-benefit analysis.

Let Liz and Rachel turbocharge your grant writing skills and prepare you for DEED’s fall funding cycle which opened May 1. The August 15 application deadline will be here before you know it, so don’t delay, register today.
