Who We Are?

The Holland Community Energy Plan (CEP) Strategic Development Team (SDT), a workgroup composed of community, higher education, Holland BPW, and City Council representatives, is appointed by the Mayor and approved by Council.


Holland Community Energy Plan Governance 2019 - 2021



The purpose of the SDT is to recommend, to City Council, strategic initiatives, and metrics on interim goals (3-5 years) to achieve the CEP’s primary goals:

  • Ensure economic competitiveness
  • Provide reliable and affordable energy
  • Protect the environment

Resources Document

The SDT members received a Resources Document for reference.  The sources of this information are wide-ranging, but many of them are documents that have previously been discussed by the previous SDT process and come straight from the Community Energy Plan.  The Resources document is a document that will be updated periodically.                                                              

Work Group Charter

The SDT will:

  • Study, identify, and recommend transformational and incremental goals and strategies
  • Assess market, technology, and social trends as it relates to Holland and the CEP
  • Gather and use community input to determine priorities, due dates, and metrics
  • Identify potential funding sources
  • Review reports and monitor progress on the key metrics in the CEP
