A growing number of cities and towns are committing to achieve 100 percent renewable energy and making comprehensive plans to achieve net zero carbon emissions community-wide. Local officials and ordinary citizens, working together at the municipal level, are proving that we can take big steps forward on clean energy no matter what’s happening in Washington, D.C.
In this webinar, we’ll share new resources developed to help residents, elected officials, and municipal staff accelerate progress on clean energy and energy efficiency in their communities.
The Metropolitan Area Planning Council’s Local Energy Action Dashboard (LEAD) provides a snapshot of a city or town’s energy usage and carbon emissions from homes and businesses, helping local leaders prioritize where to take action in order to have the biggest impact. Community Action Planning for Energy Efficiency (CAPEE), developed by the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships, is an online platform that helps communities identify actionable steps to achieve energy and carbon reduction goals.
Speakers will discuss how residents and local officials can use these resources in their communities. We will also share the Road to 100% Renewable Energy toolkit developed by Mass Power Forward.
