Global Green is proud to participate in many catalyic, clean energy projects.
In 2014, Global Green joined President Obama in Mountain View, California to announce over 300 public and private commitments to advancing solar deployment, as part of the President’s vision for increased investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy. Drawing on its expertise in green building for affordable housing, Global Green committed to solar installations across California that will collectively total 1MW by 2017.
Global Green and Green Cross produced a guide for actors responding to the public debate about offshore wind power in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc and has contributed to a number of public meetings on the topic. The organization has also helped to mobilize the network of Breton entrepreneurs on issues and opportunities presented by offshore wind power.
Across New Orleans, sixth grade students learned valuable science lessons that helped their families make responsible energy use decisions and discover how to save money on household utility bills.
Thanks to Energy Smart New Orleans, a program developed by the New Orleans City Council, in 2014, Global Green USA’s NOLA staff taught over 1,000 students the concept of energy efficiency, giving them the knowledge and tools needed to begin reducing energy usage. After two days of classroom discovery, students received a Be Energy Smart Kit containing four CFL bulbs, two faucet aerators, one low-flow showerhead and one LED night light; then they were asked to put their new ‘smarts’ to work by installing the energy efficient items at home and documenting their success back in the classroom.
