Process for Developing Clean Energy, Energy Policy and Resilience in Towns

Presented by:
Mark Scully & Bernard Pelletier, People’s Action for Clean Energy
Across the country, towns and cities are taking their energy future into their own hands, unwilling to wait for state or federal support. Many community leaders are beginning to make real progress at the local level. In Connecticut, People’s Action for Clean Energy (PACE) has worked with towns across the state to develop viable, practical plans to transition to 100% renewable energy.

These topics will be covered:
– Interesting town leaders in adopting clean energy
– Benchmarking the town’s current energy usage for residents, businesses and the municipality, including electricity, heating/cooling and transportation.
– Estimating how much this usage could be reduced by aggressive efficiency and electrification of heating, cooling and transportation.
– Measuring how much renewable energy could realistically be generated in town.
– Exploring the impact of 100% renewable energy on the local grid.

After this initial benchmarking is complete, PACE works towns to develop a roadmap of local initiatives, policies and activities to transition to 100% renewable energy. This work has led to a growing compendium of shared best practices that towns can learn from.
