Resource Management and Climate Protection Committee

The Resource Management and Climate Protection Committee (RMCP) seats seven elected officials and representatives from each of the following six: energy, water utility, nonprofit, business/chamber of commerce, and environmental organization, for a total of 13 seats. Originally called the Utilities Sustainability Task Force (USTF), it developed a San Mateo County Energy Strategy for the county, which was adopted by every city in San Mateo County in 2009. The RMCP Committee provides information and recommendations to CMEQ and the C/CAG Board on items related to resource conservation and climate action. The Committee also tracks the progress of two main C/CAG programs, the San Mateo County Energy Watch (SMCEW) and the Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite (RICAPS). The Committee also seeks to integrate equity into resource conservation and climate actions, including: workforce development, access by constituents, and inclusion of community-based organizations.

The SMCEW, a Local Government Partnership between C/CAG and PG&E, implements energy-saving projects in multiple sectors countywide. RICAPS supports city efforts to develop, implement and track progress on climate action plan measures to reduce countywide greenhouse gas emissions. Both of these programs are further described at the following link:

The RMCP Committee meets on the third Wednesday of the month (as needed) throughout the year at 3:00 p.m., in either San Mateo at 155 Bovet Rd. or Redwood City at County Center, or virtually by Zoom meetings due to COVID-19. Please check agendas below for location details.

Time: 3:00 p.m. Location: San Mateo, Redwood City, or Virtually by Zoom. Please refer to Agenda.
