Power of 32 Energy Baseline Analysis
Ethos Collaborative led expert analysis for the development of a regional energy and greenhouse gas emissions to support the development of a regional energy plan for the Power of 32. This was the first-ever assessment of how much and how intensively energy is produced, consumed, imported, exported, and lost annually from the Region, which unites Pittsburgh and 32 counties across western Maryland, eastern Ohio, southwestern Pennsylvania, and northern West Virginia and covers approximately 17,380 square miles.
This analysis served as a quantitative baseline for guiding future regional energy strategies, setting, actionable energy goals, and benchmarking progress. The baseline provided the foundation for the Energy of the Power of 32 conference held in December of 2014, kicking off a regional energy planning effort now underway and convened by Sustainable Pittsburgh.
