Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Energy Efficiency

COURSE NO: R05-003
Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Energy Efficiency
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how local governments can achieve multiple benefits by improving the energy efficiency of their new, existing, and reno­vated facilities and their day-to-day operations. This course describes strategies for developing and implementing energy efficiency programs and gives actual examples of communities in which similar programs have been successfully introduced.


Saving energy through energy efficiency improvements can be more cost effective than generating, transmitting, and distributing additional energy from power plants. Energy efficiency also helps reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and improves energy security and independence.


This 5 PDH online course is intended for civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and municipal engineers concerned with reducing the environmental impact of their local government through the introduction of sustainable technologies.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Improving energy efficiency in existing and new local government facilities
  • Assessing baseline energy performance
  • Setting goals
  • Creating an action plan
  • Implementing the action plan
  • Evaluating progress
  • Recognizing benefits of green buildings
  • Learning with case studies
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Energy Efficiency” which is based on the Environmental Protection Agency document, “Energy Efficiency in Local Government Operations, A Guide to Developing and Implementing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Programs”, from the EPA’s Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy Series, 2013.
