Climate Change Action - Region 1

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description U.S. EPA Region 1's Assistance and Pollution Prevention Office is working on two programs to improve energy efficiency for wastewater and water treatment facilities. As part of a State Innovation Grant, Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) hosted a kick-off meeting on February 25 that featured an energy focused environmental management system (EMS) for wastewater facilities. Fifteen of Rhode Island's nineteen wastewater facilities attended, and all attendees signed-up for further participation in the project. In cooperation with the State, the third in a series of Energy Management Roundtable meetings was offered to wastewater plants and water utilities to promoted energy audits and an energy management system. For more information, contact: Gina Snyder, EPA Region 1 (617) 918-1837.

U.S. EPA Region 1 is planning a May 13 workshop on the benefits of combined heat and power opportunities. Presentations will focus on how Energy Services Companies use bonding mechanisms to address the financial challenges of working with the health care sector. For more information, contact: Roy Crystal, EPA Region 1 (617) 918-1745.

U.S. EPA Region 1 continues to promote the Community Energy Challenge program, an opportunity for municipalities across New England to identify simple and cost-effective measures that increase energy efficiency and renewable energy use. The four-step program invites communities to 1) take the pledge, 2) assess energy use and set a target for reduction, 3) work with EPA and organizations across the region to identify opportunities for energy efficiency and renewable energy, and 4) participate in EPA's recognition program. EPA will provide technical assistance to every community that chooses to "Take the Challenge". For more information, contact: Cynthia Greene, U.S. EPA Region 1 (617) 918-1813.
