LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan and Ohio are working together on an effort to reduce energy costs and waste in homes and businesses.

The Michigan-Northeastern Ohio Regional Clean Energy Roadmap Project has received more than $700,000 in funding, including $400,000 from the federal government.

The project aims to foster growth in the clean-energy sector in both states while promoting technologies to improve energy efficiency. The U.S. Department of Energy, the Michigan Energy Office and the Ohio Energy Office are involved in the effort.

Under the project, manufacturers of energy-efficiency products in Michigan and Ohio will get assistance in developing technology, designing prototypes, improving manufacturing processes and assessing potential opportunities in the energy market.

On Thursday, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder plans a roundtable discussion on the future of Michigan's energy policy.
