    • Perspectives onOur Clean Energy Journey March 2011 Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
    • Clean Energy Journey Context – Best Clean Energy State in Nation Role of Cities and Towns Priorities -- Economic Growth Efficiency Renewables Jobs Goals Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
    • MA has High Electricity Prices … Source: EIA Form 8263 Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
    • … but MA gets lots of $GDP per MMBTU Source: EIA/Bureau of Economic Analysis 2008 Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
    • Clean Energy Legislation 2008 • Green Communities Act  Expands EE delivery mechanisms and goals  RPS – expansion and strengthening targets of 1997 Act  Net metering provisions  Establishes DOER’s Green Communities Program • Global Warming Solutions Act  2020 commitments – 10-25% below 1990 levels  2050 commitments – 80% or more below 1990 levels • Oceans Management Act  Provides zoning-like planning of state waters  Identifies presumptive areas for wind development • Clean Energy Jobs  MA Clean Energy Center as clean jobs focal point • Clean Energy Biofuels Act  Support for advanced biofuels  Paves way for transition to LCFS5 Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
    • Cities and Towns Valued Partners• Trusted partnerships enabling better energy decisions for all  Examples of success – assessments, investments, reduced consumption, savings  Sharing best practices – homeowners, renters, all businesses, institutions  State and local governments leading by example  Learning partners in what works well and what can work better• 351 Community Partners – engaging and empowering everyone  Each with approaches tailored to their needs  Enabling tangible progress  64 Stretch Code Communities  53 Green Communities Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs

    • MassEnergyInsightMassEnergyInsight enables cities and towns to perform key energy management tasks:1. Develop an energy use baseline2. Benchmark building performance3. Identify priority targets for energy efficiency investments4. Show the results of energy efficiency investments5. Highlight any irregularities in energy use6. Develop a greenhouse gas emissions inventory7. Generate reports for stakeholders8. Forecast energy budgets Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
