SECTION 2:
CLIMATE/ENERGY ACTION PLAN PROJECT PROCESS
9
Carbon reductions achieved between 2007 and 2010 – this represents the significant
work done by the City staff to reduce carbon emissions with relatively low capital
cost investments; as a result, much of the “low hanging fruit” has been realized
Expected carbon emissions without implementation of additional reduction strategies
with growth at 2.5% per year per the City Planning Department, the gains made
will be eroded and will return to 2007 levels and then exceed those levels without
additional reductions
Future carbon emissions projections with implementation of additional reduction
strategies developed by the Interdepartmental Teams
Potential future strategies based on carbon reduction potential and estimated capital
costs to implement
At the conclusion of the meeting, the consensus of the Managers and Directors was that the
project direction was appropriate and would result in the CEAP as envisioned by the City.
