EPA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Strategies Part IV: Green Power Procurement (AIA# TCEGG4) (1 credit hours)
This 1 hour 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.  The course describes the benefits of green power procurement; measures for purchasing green power; policy mechanisms that local governments have used to support green power purchases; and implementation strategies for effective programs.  Two case studies of local govern­ments that have comprehensive programs in place for purchasing green power are presented.
 
This course was developed from the EPA’s Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy Series titled "A Guide to Developing and Implementing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Programs".

As prepared for Titan Coursework this EPA series has been separated into separate courses and may be taken out of sequence, each course independent from another.
