The Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy Series provides a comprehensive, straightforward overview of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction strategies for local governments.
Each guide provides an overview of project benefits, policy mechanisms, investments, key stakeholders, and other implementation considerations. Examples and case studies highlighting achievable results from programs implemented in communities across the United States are incorporated throughout the guides.
The guide is designed to be used by staff at local energy or environment agencies, local code enforcement officials and city planners, city councils, and mayors or county executives. It also provides information useful for local government partners, such as local businesses, utilities, energy service companies, and non-profit organizations.
Readers of the guide should come away with an understanding of options to improve energy efficiency using CHP, a clear idea of the steps and considerations involved in implementing CHP systems, and an awareness of expected investment and funding opportunities.
