Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of North St. Paul. North St. Paul has its own municipal electric utility, and offers energy conservation programs and rebates to customers. Concerned that residents were not taking full advantage of the programs, the City wanted to evaluate current energy conservation efforts. Project lead Brian Frandle partnered with students in OLPD 5501: Principles and Methods of Evaluation, to design an evaluation plan. The students outlined questions, types of data needed, data sources, and data-collection methods. The students' final report, presentation, and handout are available.
Report, presentation and handout completed by students enrolled in OLPD 5501: Principles and Methods of Evaluation, taught by Randi Nelson in fall 2013.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
