RICAPS Water Contribution to Greenhouse Gas Emissions

datahub.smcgov.org | Last Updated 6 Jun 2019

Data by city showing energy contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in the County. This data is part of the Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite (RICAPS) program. 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
