Greening Our Energy
This page is in draft: we are still forming our workshops.
Municipalities need to both reduce energy use and prepare their communities for climate impacts. We'll explore planning tools to do both: Climate Action Plans (which outline initiatives and goals), and climate adaptation and vulnerability assessments. We will also show how actions taken to become certified as a Climate Smart or Clean Energy Community will serve to increase energy efficiency. We hope to discuss how you can reduce your town's carbon footprint through a GHG inventory and energy audit, and by transitioning to electric landscaping equipment on town property.
