Integrated Municipal Energy Services Committee EESE Board Statute: Encourage Municipalities to increase investments in energy efficiency and sustainable energy through financing tools, and to create local energy Committees (or commissions) Purpose: To facilitate an increased investment in energy efficiency and sustainable energy by municipalities and counties through identification, development and promotion of the necessary practices, financing tools and technical resources (including the engagement of local energy committees).
Reduce municipal fossil fuel energy consumption by 50% below 2005 levels by 2025. Insulate the municipal energy budget from price volatility in the global energy market. Ensure that critical government services will continue in the event of short- or long-term energy supply disruptions Stimulate local economic development through job creation in the energy field and reinvestment of avoided energy Vision
Specific Goals for Municipal Energy Working Group The integration of energy efficiency and sustainable energy in all municipal business practices The provision of a clearing house and tool kit to serve municipalities in EE/SE procurement
The identification of policies and programs that are needed to encourage widespread adoption of energy efficiency and renewable/sustainable energy practices and technologies Support the development of effective local energy committees Specific Goals for Municipal Energy Working Group
