    The Proposed CA eTRM

    The AESP California Chapter hosted a lunch event in Downey, CA and an evening event in Oakland, CA featuring the proposed California electronic Technical Reference Manual (eTRM). The California Technical Forum (Cal TF) is building an electronic Technical Reference Manual, known as the eTRM, that will be a repository for all statewide deemed measures. The new state-of-the art, best-in-class eTRM platform will be essential to streamlining and ensuring the transparency of the ex-ante measure process, implementation, and reporting workflow. Moreover, the eTRM supports the policy goals of the new California implementation framework where third-party implementation contractors are expected to design and implement 60% of the portfolio by 2020. This update from CalTF staff members outlined some of the numerous benefits the eTRM will bring to California’s energy efficiency industry.

    PG&E Office or Webinar - How the State of California will Reach ZNE

    Matt Henigan, Deputy Secretary, Sustainability for California Government Operations Agency, shared the State’s efforts to lead by example and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020, and to work toward zero net energy in 50% of existing building square footage by 2025. We learned about the drivers behind these efforts, the strategies and tactics that are keeping the State of California on track, and the progress that has been made to date.

    Volunteer Project -- Rebuilding Together

    Ever wonder what your California counterparts are up to? At the end of April 2017, the AESP California chapter set up their first volunteer effort with Rebuilding Together. A total of 13 volunteers brought their wrenches and pliers and got to work installing low-flow faucet aerators and shower heads, installing LEDs, checking fridge and water heater temperatures, and educating residents about energy efficiency. The team was able to round up donations from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, KW Sustainable Brands, and Embertec. Thanks to our donors and volunteers for all their help!
