Akoya has been awarded a contract to support DOE’s Weatherization and Intergovernmental Programs Office with strategic communications and peer exchange services. Akoya will work with the State and Local Policy and Technical Assistance team, which equips state, local, tribal, and K-12 school district leaders with resources to pursue clean and efficient energy in their jurisdictions. Akoya brings more than a decade of experience in strategic communications and stakeholder engagement in the arena of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and energy technology.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has renewed Akoya’s contract for strategic communications support to the Solid-State Lighting program. Since 2003, Akoya has been helping PNNL promote the tremendous energy saving potential of solid-state lighting. Akoya plans and executes campaigns that address multiple constituencies critical to the transformation of the lighting market, including researchers, national laboratories, manufacturers, standards organizations, lighting designers, architects, and consumers. SSL products have begun building market share, but R&D continues to yield further energy savings, better performance, and more cost-effective manufacturing processes.
