SourceOne, an energy management and advisory services subsidiary of Veolia Energy North America, has been selected by the town of Hempstead in New York, US to provide energy efficiency measures.

Under the contract, SourceOne will provide program management services to assist the Town with implementation of an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) program from the US Department of Energy(DOE).

In collaboration with the town of Hempstead, SourceOne secured a $4.6m grant through the EECBG program, created to assist US cities, counties and states to develop, promote, implement and manage energy efficiency and conservation projects and programs.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 appropriated $3.2bn for EECBGs to be distributed by the DOE across the country.

SourceOne will also help execute the grant, and will provide technical support, along with support in grant administration, compliance, preparation of RFP, contractor selection, timeline and budget management and DOE protocol.
