Statewide (Outside of Pilot Regions) CSC Coordinator

Technical Assistance to Climate Smart Communities

Climate Action Associates (CAA) is the designated support contractor to provide technical assistance to Climate Smart Communities in areas not inside one of the pilot regions. For current participants, and for those interested in the program, CAA can answer technical questions about the program, including how to participate and benefit from the resources available. CAA will provide case studies and technical implementation assistance, and coordinate information sharing with other communities where possible.

In partnership with The Climate Registry, CAA is facilitating statewide coordination of a unified GHG protocol to govern regional and community GHG inventories developed through the CSC program. For those interested in supporting GHG protocol development in New York, CAA will help answer your questions and/or help you become involved in the process. In addition, for all regions CAA is leading an effort to coordinate with state utilities to create a common approach for large utilities to provide data to CSC participants in a consistent and efficient way. CAA can support CSC participants that would like to learn more about this process, and/or would like assistance in working with a utility to acquire data for their program needs.
