Q&A. Q: How can you stimulate your local economy, save money, fight climate change, and reduce risk from rising energy prices — all at the same time. A: By saving energy with ENERGY and local governments across the nation are using ENERGY STAR tools and resources to improve energy efficiency in their communities.
State and local governments across the U.S. are focused on how clean energy can help them meet a variety of energy, economic development, and environmental goals. An early step for most energy efficiency planning involves identifying and quantifying energy savings opportunities, followed by understanding how to access this efficiency potential.
to present this report, A Guide for Local Government Executives on Energy Efficiency and Sustainability, by Nathan Francis and Richard C. Feiock, Askew School of Public Administration and Policy, Florida State University. This report describes an important trend in local government—an increased focus on energy efficiency and sustainability.
Energy Efficiency: Energy Efficiency in Local Government Operations Local governments can implement energy-saving measures in existing local government facilities, new and green buildings, and day-to-day operations.
Because energy-efficient product procurement helps reduce energy loads, it can also increase the cost-effectiveness. In addition, by providing incentives for developers to. incorporate energy efficiency in affordable housing design and renovation, local governments promote broader use of energy-efficient practices by local busi- nesses, including developers, architects, contractors, property management firms, and retailers.
Energy use can account for as much as 10 percent of a local government’s annual operating budget, and that proportion may increase as energy prices rise. City governments have great opportunities to lead by example, as they advance energy-efficient technologies and practices by adopting policies and programs to save energy in public sector.
The Solar Guidebook contains information, tools, and step-by-step instructions to support local governments managing solar energy development in their communities.
