Community Power Works: How Seattle is Creating Jobs and Savings Energy

Join Adam Buick, Program Coordinator of Seattle Community Power Works (CPW) for discussion on how the diverse and foward-thinking city of Seattle is helping its residents save energy. CPW is a neighborhood program in central and southeast Seattle that will make energy efficiency improvements to buildings in six sectors: single-family, multi-family, small commercial, large commercial, hospital and municipal sectors. To drive demand for these retrofits, Seattle is implementing and testing a variety of innovative strategies ranging from creation of a Carbon Reduction Incentive Fund that will reward proptery owners for every ton of carbon reduced to developing a flexible service model that will provide homeowners with a specific level of energy consultation suiting their needs.

Transforming Cities and Towns: Energy Efficiency From a Mayor's Perspective
The Town of University Park, MD is implementing the Small Town Energy Program for University Park (STEP-UP), a 3-year project with the goal of reducing total energy use in the town by 20%. Initial results are extremely promising: since the program launch less than two months ago, more than 10% of the town has taken the first steps towards energy efficiency by signing up for a Home Performance with Energy Star home audit. Join Mayor John Tabori and STEP-UP PI Chuck Wilson as they discuss the rigorous logic model and unique program design that they hope will serve as a road map for other towns to embark on similar transformative efficiency programs.
