Air Quality-Energy and Climate
Energy and Climate Team
Formerly the Greenhouse Gas Energy Conservation Team
The Missoula Energy and Climate Team is comprised of volunteers appointed by the City Council. Team members are chosen from various sectors of the community including an industrial, institutional, government, commercial, construction, transportation and a conservation community member.
The objective of the Energy and Climate Team is to aid in the community-wide education and communication of energy efficiency opportunities and renewable energy measures that minimize greenhouse gas generation. The team provides recommendations to the City Council on what the city government and the community can do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Projects that the team has completed include recycling bins in the downtown and a Renewable Energy Certificate campaign called Green Power Missoula. Listed below are links to the Missoula Greenhouse Gas Energy Conservation Plan that was adopted by the city in 2004 and a partial list of projects accomplished by the team.
