The Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships, the Lexington, Mass.-based non-profit group that seeks to create a “drumbeat of business support-- publicly through the media and privately through influencers of the influential--to protect and expand clean energy programs and climate protection policies,” is looking for PR support.
The selected firm/contractor will work hand-in-hand with the New England Clean Energy Council and policy shop Cater Communications to engage mainstream business leaders to support efficiency and green initiatives and to develop blogs/op-eds/white papers, according to its RFP.
An aggressive social media component is part of the PR drive including “use/coordination with selected network listservs, and posting content in relevant newsletters/communications.”
The ultimate goal is to make NEEP’s program a national model.
NEEP sponsors include National Grid, Efficiency Vermont, Yankee Gas, New York State Energy and Development Authority, Connecticut Power & Light, D.C. Sustainable Energy Utility, Long Island Power Authority and Public Service of New Hampshire.
Carrie Nash, NEEP’s strategic marketing manager, has information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals are due Aug. 30. A contract will be awarded Sept. 14 and run through Feb. 28.
