- FY 2010 Annual Program Plan and Budget. This identifies the programs and financing initiatives for fiscal year 2010 (July 1, 2009--June 30, 2010).
The Strategic Plan provides a framework for the Clean Energy Development Fund, including how the funds will be managed and how they will be distributed to meet the goals of the Fund. The CEDF and the CED Board look to the strategic plan when developing annual plans and budgets. 2023 was going to be the year the CEDF and CED Board conducts a thorough update the 2018 strategic plan. Given the lack of funds that the CEDF currently has control over and the Legislature's decision to sun-set the CED Board within five years it was decided that the effort to draft a new strategic plan would be better spent on other tasks. If the CEDF receives new funding for which it needs to plan strategically for, it will revise its strategic plan at that time.
Wood Heating in Vermont
- When wood fuels are sourced locally from well-managed forests and used to directly replace fossil fuels in high-efficiency applications like space heating, they can be an excellent long-term carbon emission reduction strategy for Vermont.

Impact Assessment of CEDF's Programs to Promote Advanced Wood Heating (Published March 2019)
Information on the 2019 State-wide stove change-out program can be found at the Renewable Energy Resource Center web site.
The purpose of this baseline assessment was to determine and document the state of the Vermont wood heat market and sector in 2016, so that further market development progress can be measured against a specific point in time. This 2016 baseline will also help evaluate the effectiveness of the various wood heat support programs in the future.

Vermonter's Guide to Residential Solar
- Vermonter's Guide to Residential Solar (2018) There are many ways to build and finance a solar PV system, and navigating these options can be challenging. This guide (revised since the original 2016 version) aims to help homeowners decide whether it makes sense for them to go solar, and if so, how. The guide, “A Vermonter’s Guide to Residential Solar,” was written by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) for the CEDF and Vermont Department of Public Service. It is divided into sections so that readers can refer to relevant information at different points in the decision-making and installation process.
ARRA Final Report
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) was signed into law by President Obama in February 2009. Through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Vermont Department of Public Service (PSD) was allocated $31,592,500 in ARRA funds. The one-time federal stimulus presented a substantial opportunity for the PSD to expand the scope and rate of energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy development in Vermont, an effort that will have lasting economic and environmental benefits.
This report details the deployment of the $31.5 million in ARRA funds by the CEDF and the Department of Public Service between 2009 and 2012. All of the information presented in this report is based on the estimated impacts projected by the ARRA award recipients. Brief case studies highlight the breadth of energy projects which have benefited from ARRA funding.
