CACP Software 2009 Training Series
Learn how to use ICLEI's software to complete your local government operations emissions inventory or community-wide inventory.
In conjunction with the National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) and the EPA’s State and Local Clean Energy-Environment Program, ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability conducts interactive web-based trainings on the Clean Air Climate Protection (CACP) Software 2009.
These courses are offered free to ICLEI members. NACAA members as well as members of the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) are eligible to view pre-recorded trainings at no cost. Live trainings are available to NACAA, NASEO and NARUC members and third party consultants for a fee.
Introduction to CACP 2009
- Participants will get a background on the value of completing a greenhouse gas emissions inventory, basic principles behind the Local Government Operations Protocol, an overview of CACP 2009, information on how the software has been updated and what additional user resources are available to ICLEI members. This training is intended for beginning/novice CACP 2009 users those who want to know what changes have been incorporated into CACP 2009.
CACP 2009 Inventory Training
- Participants will learn how to use CACP 2009 to complete a community and government operations inventory. ICLEI staff will walk through getting started, software settings, report generation, the forecast assistant and case studies of date entry. This will be a detailed look at the inventory modules of CACP 2009 and will be an excellent course for both novice and expert users of CACP 2009.
Advanced CACP 2009 Inventory Training
- Participants will go beyond the basic functions of CACP 2009 and take a more detailed look at customizing the software. ICLEI staff will walk through creating user-defined fuels and electricity coefficients, then delve more deeply into reporting and forecasting functions. Not all users will want or need this level of customization. In many cases the preset fuels or electricity coefficients will not need to be changed. For those who want to customize CACP 2009 to your local government's fuel consumption, we recommend that you view the pre-recorded CACP 2009 Inventory Training prior to this webinar.
