Supporting California local governments to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and accelerate climate action by building knowledge and networks amongst local government practitioners.
What we do
We are a hub for energy efficiency and sustainability news, information, best practices, and resources relevant to California’s local governments.
CCEC offers the same services provided by Civicwell (formerly the Local Government Commission) and the Best Practices Coordinator as part of the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative (SEEC), which sunsetted at the end of 2020 after 11 successful years.
This library is intended as a source to find all the resources compiled by CCEC throughout the years including best practices, technical assistance directory, technical assistance responses, webinar recordings and materials, funding resources, and a variety of other resources developed or compiled by CCEC.
