renewable energy projects versus facilitating
projects that are owned/operated by private
entities.
Evaluate benefits of keeping RECS and/or
buying additional RECs to provide for carbon
reductions.
Monitor renewables market for evolving trends
and potential funding.
Consider development of a Renewable Energy
Action Plan.
Intermediate Action Plan
(
in the next 2 to 3 years)
1.
Conduct BCEs on other Additional Future
Strategies and Best Management Practices
to
determine their total cost of ownership and to
establish timeframes for inclusion in the City’s
overall CIP program or operational policy.
2.
Implement the City of Raleigh Comprehensive
Fleet Transformation Strategy
which will result
in the most efficient mix of vehicles that minimizes
costs and overall carbon emissions.
Implementation will be based on the results of the
data gathered and analyzed as part of Item #3
under the Short-term Action Plan.
3.
Develop a policy for City LEED buildings that
places the emphasis on optimizing energy
performance
while acknowledging the potential
for additional initial capital expenditure
4.
Prepare an Annual Progress Report
documenting reductions in energy and carbon
emissions, engaging the Interdepartmental
Team in the process.
5.
Review the list of the remaining Additional
Future Strategies and Best Management
Practices
and select (or re-prioritize) those to
implement next.
6.
Begin the update of the Roadmap to identify
new priority actions
and maintain momentum,
following the CEAP process with the
Interdepartmental Team.
7.
Evaluate incorporating other City Operations
processes into the CEAP framework
such as
Information Technology and managing
construction debris generated at City-owned
projects.
Long-term Action Plan
(
beyond 3 years)
1.
Annually prepare Progress Reports
documenting
reductions in energy and carbon emissions.
2.
Continue the three-year cycle for updating the
Roadmap
with considerations for including
additional City Operations processes.
3.
Implement the Renewable Energy Action Plan
