Energy Efficiency in Buildings Working Group Meeting #2 – Community Climate Action Plan

November 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Climate Action Steering Committee (CASC) is working on a Community Climate Action Plan to implement the policy direction established by Council resolution in 2016. The Community Climate Action Plan goals are to establish a roadmap for the community to achieve fossil fuel use reductions of 40% by 2030 and 70% by 2050. Development of the Community Climate Action Plan calls for participation by the entire community. The goals are set, but how we get there is still being decided. We need community members and organizations to help us figure out how to do this for Bend.

The CASC is convening topic-specific working groups to support the development of the Bend Community Climate Action Plan. The topics include energy supply, energy in buildings, waste & materials management, and transportation. The working groups play a vital role of helping brainstorm and develop potential actions we can take as a community to meet our fossil fuel use reduction goals.

What to Expect

The sector working groups are groups of stakeholders and interested citizens that are advising the Climate Action Steering Committee on the right way for Bend to address emissions in the sector. By participating in the working group, you will be directly providing input into Bend’s C-CAP. The first of the two sector meetings focused on objectives, barriers, and equity considerations. The second of the two sector meetings will focus on identifying potential actions for the C-CAP. These meetings are open to the public and any interested members of the community are invited to participate.

How to Prepare

Please review the 2016 Bend Community Greenhouse Gas Inventory. Additional background reading materials for each working group can be found here.
