Renewable Thermal Collaborative

As more U.S. agencies and governments implement incentives for renewable thermal technologies, identifying which policies may apply to a project can be difficult. To help companies and institutions navigate the state and federal policy resources available to help decarbonize their thermal emissions, the RTC developed this database listing incentives for renewable thermal energy available to commercial, industrial, and institutional users in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and at the federal level. By mapping policy resources, the database aims to both catalyze renewable thermal deployment and inform advocacy and research.

To send us comments or questions about this database, or to submit a relevant policy for inclusion in it, email Chris Kardish ( or Oren Lieber-Kotz (
