SECTION 3:
Existing Programs and Strategies
3.1
Introduction
The City of Raleigh has a solid foundation for its sustainability program and has already
implemented a number of important projects that have increased operation and energy
efficiency, and have reduced carbon emissions. One goal of the CEAP is to capture the
projects, activities and strategies that have been put in place since 2007, the date of the
baseline inventory. This section describes the work of the four Strategy Teams to identify
the existing projects, programs and strategies, defined as those that had been implemented
between 2007 and 2010. The Strategy Teams are:
Fleet Team
Buildings Team
Carbon Team
Renewables Team
The primary vehicle to obtain and consolidate this information was a combination of
collaborative workshops and extensive work in between the workshops by both the
Interdepartmental Team Members and the consulting team to confirm information and
gather new information to fill data gaps. Each Strategy Team met separately in workshop
setting two times throughout the course of the project, and once as the full Project Team to
review the project results, as shown in Exhibit 1.
