  Inclusion of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in State Implementation Plans for Air Quality and Climate Change

Publication Date: 3/31/2010
Publication Number: 20107375


Renewable energy and energy efficiency and conservation (EERE) are core components of regional strategies to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality. EERE projects in the metropolitan Washington region have the capacity to reduce demand for electricity, create new sources of clean energy, and reduce overall emissions of criteria pollutant (precursors to ozone and fine particles) as well as greenhouse gases. To meet environmental sustainability goals, governments in the National Capital Region are leading by example to reduce energy consumption through installation of energy efficient equipment and to increase quantities of clean energy produced and purchased in the region. This document contains specific recommendations on approaches for inclusion of EERE programs in regional air quality and climate and energy sustainability plans. It is intended to be a living document that is modified over time to reflect best practices for inclusion of EERE in climate and air quality plans.
