  • 7. Helping Massachusetts Municipalities Create A Greener Energy FutureAnnual Progress Reports GCs report annually on energy useand energy projects for Criterion 3 Many GCs report energy usedirectly through FY2012: Data for 44 GreenCommunities was consideredcomplete in time for thispresentation7
  • 8. Helping Massachusetts Municipalities Create A Greener Energy FutureCommon Energy Reduction Challenges Limited staff capacity Most Green Communities focus onbuildings Vehicles are a challenge Baseline year selected was too early– GC thought had done enough projectsrecently to make it worth it, but in realityshortened 5-year timeframe too much– Baseline year change allowed once, mustbe formal request, contact your RegionalCoordinator8

Helping Massachusetts Municipalities Create A Greener Energy FutureThinking Outside the Box with Vehicles Downsize your vehicles – will a smaller vehicle do? Change your fuel type – electric vehicles– Massachusetts Electric Vehicle Incentive Program(MassEVIP) Behavioral program? Competition? Tracking and GPS required12Photo credit: Cambridge CommunityDevelopment Department
