State Climate and Energy Technical Forum Update

The State Climate and Energy Technical Forum Update alerts state staff about peer exchange opportunities and information about the latest programs and policies that promote climate change initiatives and clean energy actions. The Technical Forum helps state staff explore analytical questions and attempts to resolve key issues surrounding state climate change and clean energy efforts, such as measuring air quality benefits, electricity demand reductions, cost savings, economic development, and energy security improvements. Organized as a monthly discussion among state energy, environmental, and public utility commission officials, the Technical Forum features peer exchanges and expert presentations. Visit the State Technical Forum Web page to review presentations and other materials from previous sessions.
To sign up for the Update or get more information on the Technical Forum, contact Julia Miller (email@example.com).
Heat Islands Newsletter
The term “heat island” describes built up areas that are hotter than nearby rural areas. Heat islands can affect communities by increasing summertime peak energy demand, air conditioning costs, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, heat-related illness and mortality, and water quality. Communities can take a number of common-sense measures to reduce the effects of summertime heat islands. EPA's Heat Island website provides information on the heat island effect, its impacts, and the strategies that communities can take to reduce urban temperatures. EPA's Heat Island Newsletter keeps registrants informed with periodic announcements of funding opportunities, webcasts, publications, and events of interest to the urban heat island community.
