Statewide Energy Efficiency Best Practices Forum

A Full Day of Exciting Ideas and the Latest News
The daylong program featured several topics of interest to local governments, including energy savings programs, funding for comprehensive energy projects, and best practices for reducing energy use and greenhouse gases in your community.

California Energy Commission and California Air Resources Board representatives discussed state programs and regulations that affect local governments, including AB 32 and Proposition 23, the status of property assessed clean energy (PACE) and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) funds, the changing market for local green building, and legislation to establish a cap-and-trade community benefits fund and to allow ARB to buy PACE bonds.

The conference featured afternoon breakout sessions, focusing on best practices to implement local Climate Action Plans, create green jobs through energy efficiency programs, and put together residential retrofit programs in your community.

More information is available on the Agenda.
