Clean Power Alliance is proud to introduce an exciting new program called the “Sustainable Energy Incubator” in partnership with the Local Government Commission (LGC). The Sustainable Energy Incubator aims to engage Clean Power Alliance board members, staff, local member agencies, CSR representatives, and other stakeholders to address emerging energy issues through educational workshops and direct support.
We will be hosting a series of quarterly, in-person workshops where experts will cover a range of energy and climate topics to increase the awareness of energy issues, available tools, resources, and best practices for attendees to take back to their own communities. These workshops are free and open to the public.
Our first workshop focused on building electrification and decarbonization. This included discussions on the roadmap for decarbonization and the practical considerations of what local governments can do for on-the-ground work towards building decarbonization. The workshop agenda is available here.
Our second workshop focused on equity and making clean energy accessible to disadvantaged, low-income communities. This included discussions on case studies of programs that have successfully served these populations and ways to redefine how CCAs can better reach this customer base with data and programming. The workshop agenda is available here.
Clean Power Alliance and LGC are excited to offer technical assistance and capacity building support to our member agencies. If you are a member agency interested in applying for this service or have any questions about the Incubator, please reach out to Christian Cruz (email@example.com) or Helena Rhim (firstname.lastname@example.org).
