We bet you know how to stop, drop and roll in the event of a fire. But do you know what to do with hazardous materials? Or how to react when an earthquake strikes? Never fear – the Fremont Fire Department is coming to your rescue with free Personal Emergency Preparedness classes, which will teach you what to do during all kinds of emergency situations. The next one is Wed. 5/13 from 7-10 p.m. All classes are held at the Fremont Fire Training Tower, 7200 Stevenson Blvd, West of Hwy 880. Find out how to register: http://bit.ly/1pUCnIO http://bit.ly/15bTSLi

Just in time for Earth Day!  

“Just Eat It – A food waste story” is a documentary by two filmmakers and food lovers. Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is thrown out each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/watch/msnbc-presents-just-eat-it-428484675505 

The City of Fremont encourages residents and businesses to reduce food waste and then compost food scraps that are past their prime. For more information about composting food scraps, contact Environmental Services at 510-494-4570 or visit www.fremont.gov/environment. 
Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story premieres on msnbc April 22nd at 10pm ET.

Metropolitan regions all over the country — and the world — have been doing it, and finally, we are too! Just what am I talking about? Regions in our globally competitive economy are organizing to promote their strengths and brand themselves in unprecedented ways. And it’s paying off — just look at success stories like Austin, Texas, and New York City, and you soon realize the potential of these regional strategy investments. The greater Silicon Valley is a little late to this party, due in large part to a long history of organic economic growth fueled by abundant innovation. But the time has come to reconsider regionalism from an economic development standpoint.  - See more at: http://www.thinksiliconvalley.com/silicon-valley-east/region-ready-redi/#sthash.oYor41NT.dpuf

(A version of this blog post was originally printed on the Smart Grid Library website in March 2015)

Energy efficiency (EE) benefits are well-known. States like California have used aggressive EE policies and standards impacting appliances to building envelopes, and it's been a successful strategy to reduce per capita energy consumption. But EE itself is overdue for significant upgrades to become what is christened as EE 2.0. Progress has stalled because of challenges like split incentives and other policy and finance issues. Compare an EE investment in insulation upgrades to an investment in solar panels. Both have upfront acquisition costs with a promise of future energy bill reductions. Homeowners have a range of options that include PACE programs to finance solar investments or can partner with firms that handle the upfront acquisition and installation costs and share in the production and tax benefits. Insulation upgrades lack the same diversity of financial programs and partnership options.
