Planning the plan. After reviewing several existing guidelines for Community Energy Planning (see Resources>Guides) we decided to use the Community Energy Strategic Planning (CESP) guidelines as our primary resource. However, to design a process that reflects our unique situation, we need to select the most relevant elements of the CESP process, add elements from other guidelines, and integrate these into a coherent whole.
Intended Outcomes: 1) A rough plan for the entire process (including guidelines and other resources to tap at each stage) with the first steps mapped out in more detail. 2) Actions, timelines and division of responsibilities for the first steps.
Recommended Preparation: Familiarity with the CESP guidelines and some knowledge of other resources that may add value.
All are welcome!
