Local Government Climate & Energy Strategy: Green Power Procurement

Mark P. Rossow, Ph.D, PE Retired

This online engineering PDH course describes how local governments can advance climate and energy goals by procuring or purchasing green power to meet their electricity needs. Green power is a subset of renewable energy that is produced with no greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, typically from solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, biomass, or low-impact hydroelectric sources. It includes three types of products: utility products (for example, green power purchased from the utility through the electricity grid), renewable energy certificates (RECs), and on-site generation. The course outlines how local governments can work with utilities, local businesses, nonprofit groups, residents, state agencies, and green power marketers and brokers to purchase green power.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
