Supporting California local governments to…

save energy

by building knowledge and networks amongst practitioners.

The California Climate and Energy Collaborative aims to foster knowledge exchange and collaboration amongst local climate and energy practitioners to advance fair and equitable climate change and energy practices.

We do this through the following services:
