Mapping Energy Efficiency, Climate Planning, and Regional Partnerships

This webinar maps the energy efficiency measures, climate planning, and local partnerships that form the basis of energy efficiency implementation efforts in the San Diego region.

Local jurisdictions in the San Diego region have been supported in their climate planning and implementation efforts by a range of organizations including planning agencies, utilities, and nonprofits. Mapping regional planning and energy efficiency efforts provides a unique opportunity to identify gaps, opportunities for further programming, and to highlight areas of success for replication.

Panelists from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) will outline the planning that happens at a regional level and the partnerships in place to inform and support local climate change and implementation plans. The San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative will introduce its new ESRI Story Map which provides a unique, interactive overview of climate planning and maps how individual jurisdictions are taking action on energy efficiency. The City of Carlsbad will then share their own experience developing their climate action plan and implementing energy efficiency ordinances.

It is through collaboration and sharing knowledge and best practices that organizations can work to bridge the gap between climate planning and energy efficiency implementation. Understanding key trends and the needs of individual communities can also help frame the discussion as we look to the next stage of supporting local communities in meeting their energy needs and adapting to climate change challenges.
