Bridge to the Clean Economy: Briefing & Dialogues for Bay Area Clean Energy Leaders
Through Bridge to the Clean Economy: Low Carbon, High Impact Market Initiatives for the Bay Area, regional clean energy and climate leaders are shaping and advancing market-oriented initiatives that provide significant economic payback, are independent of government investment and major policy change, and can be quickly scaled for economic development and rapid emissions reductions in 2-5 year time frame.
The BACC and project partner, the EV Communities Alliance, have partnered with a leading climate action planning firm, Pacific Municipal Consulting (PMC), and with AltaTerra Research to assist in development of a set of proposed strategic action initiatives in four key domains: electric vehicles, commercial energy efficiency, residential upgrades and distributed renewables. Final concepts and partners will be unveiled to business and local government executives at the BACC's third anniversary convening in spring 2012.
Please join us for one or more of the Bridge to the Clean Economy Web Briefings for an in-depth overview of concept initiatives by domain and a chance to deliver feedback on each. How viable are these initiatives? Are there initiative targets we may be overlooking? Your feedback on these and other questions will be essential in shaping and driving these key initiative concepts.
HOW PARTICIPATION WORKS: Attend only the webinars that interest you. For your convenience, we are holding two identical webinars for each of the four domains. You can choose which of the two works best for your schedule. If you are unable to attend any of these webinars, you can also provide input on draft initiatives through the Bridge to the Clean Economy feedback portal, coming soon.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Regional leaders in the business, local government, financial, NGO, and academic sectors who can bring to bear their knowledge and technical expertise on how the region can best advance clean energy market initiatives.
TOPICS ADDRESSED: Concept initiatives in four key domains of electric vehicles, commercial energy efficiency, residential upgrades and distributed renewable energy.
