RICAPS Greenhouse Gas Emissions Summary

datahub.smcgov.org | Last Updated 17 Oct 2019

Summary data of each city's contribution to reduction measures of greenhouse gas emissions in the County. Each city in San Mateo County has the opportunity to develop its own Climate Action Plan (CAP) using tools developed by C/CAG in conjunction with DNV KEMA https://www.dnvgl.com/ and Hara. http://www.verisae.com/default.aspx. This project was funded by grants from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). Climate Action Plans developed from these tools will meet BAAQMD's California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines for a Qualified Greenhouse Gas Reduction Strategy. For more information, please see the RICAPS site: http://www.smcenergywatch.com/progress_report.html
