Mohawk Trail Regional Partnership

UMass Clean Energy Extension (CEE) has been engaged by the state Department of Energy Resources to support the Mohawk Trail Woodlands Partnership (MTWP), a planning and public outreach process exploring interest in a new partnership with State and Federal agencies for 21 municipalities in northwestern Massachusetts. Working in Collaboration with Franklin Regional Council of Governments and Berkshire Regional Planning Council, CEE is providing technical and analytical support to municipalities related to their heating fuel and overall energy consumption.

Support Services of the UMass Clean Energy Extension to the MTWP

This document provides a summary of the support services we are currently providing to the MTWP:

MTWP Community Energy Data Collection Documents

The following documents will aid comnunities in gathering and compiling community energy information in support of their MTWP efforts:​

From this information, we will be able to better understand town heating requirements, and offer recommendations for municipal energy efficiency opportunities in town buildings. In addition, CEE can help to evaluate the potential use of wood energy and other clean heating technologies, including district heating systems. This effort, and the participation by all MTWP towns, will be useful for the Partnership as it further considers its energy strategy options.

Thank you for participating. Our goal is be available and responsive to questions, feedback, comments, or concerns. Please contact us at:
