The environment has a significant impact on energy use and productivity. Reduced stream flows can weaken hydropower. Storms and wildfire risks can force utility public power shut offs. And hotter conditions can drive energy demand for cooling. While these disturbances are likely to continue, sustainable energy use reduces emissions, cuts costs on utility bills, and enables people and communities to better adapt.
Thus, Sierra Business Council’s Sierra Nevada Energy Watch (SNEW) program has designed its Climate and Energy Outlooks, a catalog of climate projections and related energy impacts for each county in its service territory. The goal is to highlight changing circumstances within county jurisdictions and begin conversations around potential energy solutions.
SNEW will be hosting four public workshops to present the outlooks and highlight energy solutions. SNEW’s mission is to find the best opportunities for each client – from building energy audits and benchmarking reports to energy action plans and long-term financial support. You can register for your region’s workshop using the corresponding link in the table below. See below for recordings of past events.
We hope to see you at the upcoming workshops! In the meantime, please feel free to contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
