Sustainable Maryland is pleased to invite Maryland's municipal officials and staff, Green Team members, and local advocates to attend one their statewide Leadership Training Workshops on MUNICIPAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY: MEETING THE CLIMATE DEADLINE. This training series fosters leadership skills to engage diverse stakeholders, reduce contention, and garner support for sustainability initiatives.
This year's training will help communities identify and begin to develop and implement energy efficiency policies that will equitably reduce city-wide energy consumption to meet their own climate mitigation and resilience goals. The workshop will incorporate examples, stories and tools that will help communities become more energy efficient, save money, decrease carbon pollution and fight climate change. As more and more cities get serious about climate action planning, energy efficiency is at the forefront, both nationally and at the state level. Learn about the benefits of energy efficiency; the policies and practices that can help reduce costs; funding sources and technical assistance available for increasing efficiency of municipal operations; and examples of how to engage residents and lead communities through this vital transformation for our collective future.
