The last ACE meeting on February 7 was devoted to designing a process for Community Energy Planning, drawing on the Community Energy Strategic Planning (CESP) guidelines as our primary resource. A smaller group continues to work between meetings to complete a draft process to be presented, discussed and revised by the larger ACE group on March 7. The intended outcomes and recommended preparation for the next meeting therefore remain the same:
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!
