Interested in Increasing the Energy Efficiency of your Aging Housing Stock?

The housing stock in our country is aging.  These older homes tend to be inefficient and poorly insulated.  This results in higher than necessary energy use and a burden on the grid.

The good news is that there are options to improve the energy efficiency of these older homes.  Check out this introductory video about Deep Energy Retrofits of Older Homes.

New Resources for Community Energy Planning

Community energy planning is not a new idea, but it's back in the news lately, as local leaders everywhere try to ease the pinch of higher gas prices and to create more green jobs. If your community is ready to visit--or revisit--this important topic, CEA can offer helpful advice and references! Here is a sampling:
 
 
One new release: the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has a new report: Local Energy Planning in Practice: A Review of Recent Experiences.It looks at the work of local governments which, like Arlington County, Virginia, have developed plans to capture these benefits for their communities. We're impressed that the ACEEE team has applied knowledege and tools that have been around for decades, to try to come up with a "best practices" strategy for today.

 

Another source of inspiration is the website of the Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change Conference. This is now an annual conference, which is largely focused on local planning in action. That is, what kinds of local programs and activities might you aim for, considering which have proven exciting and successful already? See www.beccconferenece.org and don't miss the YouTube videos of conference "lightening presentations". Also, look for a trend among presentations that use social networking, competitions, and other new marketing techniques. CEA has tapped these resources from time to time for our own work.
This full factsheet will be updated and posted in the Forum Section soon-- Check back next month or drop us a line through the Member Messages tool!
