   Aaron Klemm, Energy Project Manager, City of
    Huntington Beach, 714-536-5537
   Update ongoing statewide and regional efforts that are
    bringing about greater collaboration among local

   Describe pilot collaborative programs and the benefits
    they will provide to local governments

   Discuss future opportunities and next steps for greater
    collaboration between local governments
   Statewide Energy Efficiency Coalition
       ICLEI
       Institute of Local Governments
       Local Government Coalition

   Investor Owned Utility Partnerships
   CA Energy Commission
   Stimulus Programs
   The mission of ICLEI is to build, serve, and drive a movement of local
    governments to advance deep reductions in GHG emissions and achieve tangible
    improvements in local sustainability.

   ICLEI will conduct a series of workshops and trainings for local governments on
    taking key steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions including: conducting a local
    government operations inventory; conducting a community-scale inventory;
    developing an emissions reduction target; and developing and implementing a
    climate action plan.

   ICLEI will also develop and deliver a suite of resources to aid local governments
    implement energy efficiency measures and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The
    suite will be developed around ICLEI’s Five Milestones for Climate Mitigation,
    which provides a systematic framework for analyzing GHG emissions, developing
    a reduction target, developing and implementing a climate action plan, and
    monitoring implementation.
   LGC provides inspiration, technical assistance, and networking to
    local elected officials and other dedicated community leaders who are
    working to create healthy, walkable, and resource-efficient

   LGC will provide webinars on energy efficiency strategies for local
    governments; hold an annual statewide conference on greenhouse gas
    reduction and energy efficiency best practices; provide local
    government partners a chance to network with each other and
    provide peer support; and develop a report on energy efficiency
    programs, including strategic plan activities and tracking, to inform
    the development of a Local Government Energy Efficiency Website.
   Institute for Local Government is the non-profit
    research affiliate of the League of California Cities and
    the California State Association. ILG’s California
    Climate Action Network (CCAN) provides resources,
    networking and recognition for cities and counties to
    reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save energy.

   Participating in the Beacon Award lets local agencies
    receive positive recognition for saving energy,
    conserving resources, promoting sustainability and
    reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It lets cities and
    counties shine a bright light on their accomplishments
    for their residents, colleagues and others. For more

   Existing resources have helped Local Governments
    become more aware and engaged

   Utility Local Government Partnerships have
    transitioned from “non-resource” to “resource”

   Additional energy management resources are
    needed to get projects implemented

   Energy Project challenges in LGs
       Procurement & Finance
         Frequency
         Recourse
         Staff expertise
         Get best value for taxpayer not shareholder
   Issues:
     Most LG’s tend to do one debt financed comprehensive
      energy project a decade
     This puts LG’s at a disadvantage in the market due to the
      inability to maintain staff expertise and ongoing
      relationships with energy services companies
   Solution: Create shared Master Enabling
    Agreements to facilitate procurement & finance
    of Energy Projects
   Modeled on CSU Chancellor’s Office and KS
    State Energy Office services
       As-needed staff expertise
       Pre-qualified bidders
       Approved by City Attorney’s Agreement library
       Specifications library
       Group purchasing power
   Potential MEAs:
       Retro-Commissioning
       Energy project development beyond IOU/CEC
        Technical Assistance
       Energy project procurement & implementation
         SB 118 impacts
       Energy project finance
       Solar PPA development
       Solar PPA procurement
       Energy Efficiency Credit revenue
       Grant applications
