This listserv is intended to allow interested local energy and climate practitioners and others to continue the conversation that began on April 23, 2020 at a Virtual Office Hours on the topic of Local Natural Gas Emission Reductions. Event materials (including a recording) can be found here:

The purpose of this listserv is to share questions, information, resources and lessons learned relevant to helping local governments pursue a variety of natural gas emission reduction options. This is not a forum to promote products or services for sale. Please keep all comments respectful, allow for differing opinions, and be conscientious about dominating the conversation. 

Topic Overview
In California, residential and commercial buildings are one of the largest sources of carbon emissions for cities and counties, and natural gas accounts for about half of building energy use. Many of the State's local governments are considering options for reducing natural gas emissions in their climate action plans, building codes, general plans to meet State and local emission, decarbonization or zero emission building goals. Approaches range from incentives to lower natural gas use in existing buildings, to incorporating more renewable natural gas supplies, to various types of reach codes or municipal codes focused on encouraging electrification in new construction.
