On Wednesday, October 16, Maryland Association of Counties’ (MACo) Executive Director, Michael Sanderson, moderated the session, “The Components of Community Energy Assurance” at the Maryland Clean Energy Summit in Prince George’s County.
The session was held to help government officials understand how to design, implement and fund distributed energy systems at government facilities.
Ted Atwood from the Baltimore City Energy Office talked about that jursdiction’s effort to reduce energy costs and manage usage. Following audience questions, he indicated that one key tool the City has used has been to isolate the energy office as a stand-alone self-funded enterprise, saying “we don’t have to fight in the general fund for an appropriation,” citing the cost savings as the engine driving energy investments.
