Oakland's 2020 Energy and Climate Action Plan
Oakland's 2020 Energy and Climate Action Plan (ECAP) was adopted by the City Council on December 4th, 2012. The purpose of the City's first ECAP is to identify and prioritize actions the City can take to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions associated with Oakland. The ECAP also establishes how to coordinate implementation of those actions and how to track progress. The ECAP assists the City of Oakland in continuing its legacy of leadership on energy, climate and sustainability issues.

Updated Energy and Climate Action Plan Now Available
The City of Oakland’s primary roadmap for sustainability and climate action is now available in a revised and updated form. Oakland's Energy and Climate Action Plan (ECAP) was first adopted by the City Council in 2012. In 2017-18, City staff worked across multiple departments and with green business groups, social justice organizations, and environmental stakeholders to update the ECAP. The timeframe and greenhouse gas reduction goals are unchanged. The revised document reflects actions that have been completed or are fully underway, reprioritized actions, updated cost estimates, and the most recent greenhouse gas emissions inventory.
In 2018, the City of Oakland began developing its next roadmap for climate action: The 2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan. Read about the process to develop this groundbreaking new plan here:
