New Report: Energy and Economic Development Task Force

The Tompkins County Legislature asked TCAD to create a task force to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders to address the following question:

Over the next five years, what key issues do we need to address locally to advance Tompkins County’s greenhouse gas emissions goals while supporting the County’s economic development strategy?

The Energy and Economic Development Task Force (EEDTF) met 18 times between June 2015 and June 2016. Together, they learned more about the issues, shared perspectives, brainstormed ideas and worked to identify near-term activities that respond effectively to the challenge of transforming the energy system while maintaining a vibrant economy.

The Final Report, including eight priority recommendations for action, is now available.

This report, in conjunction with the Tompkins County Energy Road Map, will help inform the 2016 update of the Tompkins County Energy Strategy.
