Northern Virginia Regional Energy Strategy
  • At its May 26 meeting, the Northern Virginia Regional Commission approved development of a Northern Virginia Regional Energy Strategy
  • This modifies an earlier direction to create a Regional Energy Plan
  • The Regional Energy Strategy calls for NVRC to work with the region’s localities to:
    • To develop regional energy actions that support local and regional energy goals
    • To bring together local energy goals, savings targets and measurement strategies to facilitate common actions
    • Complete energy use and greenhouse gas emission inventories in those localities not having a complete inventory
  • Opportunities for regional actions include:
    • Establishing a broad based energy efficiency program alliance
    • Providing training and assistance in developing district energy systems
    • Supporting energy-based economic development
    • Coordinating regional participation in utility solar demonstration and other programs
    • Expanding local green business challenges, and more
