Video Transcript from the Compendium of Best Practices launch event @ Yale University

A few months ago, I published an article in this blog on the Compendium of Best Practices: Sharing Local and State Successes in Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy from the United States, in which state and local governments share the key elements of their programs, lessons learned and what made each program a success.

The report describes more than 20 practices and their effective implementation by states or cities across the United States.  It is designed to share successful program and policy models that can be easily replicated around the country, as well as adapted for implementation in emerging markets.  The compendium’s overviews, insights, lessons learned and best practices were selected by a panel of U.S., Indian and Chinese energy experts.

Now, the videos from the Launch Event at Yale University are available and as it was a high level panel and some very interesting presentations, I wanted to share that with you. You can find the videos from all panels below – enjoy 🙂
