The Sustainable Energy Committee consists of 7 members. The Board of Selectmen, the Municipal Light Board and the School Committee each appoint one member.  These members may be a board member, officer, official or paid employee and may be a non-resident of the Town.  The Board of Selectmen also appoint the remaining four members from residents active in the Town’s volunteer sustainable energy initiatives or others who bring relevant expertise, such as knowledge about sustainable energy practices, marketing, or community engagement.

The Committee proposes sustainable energy goals, to reduce Town greenhouse gas emissions from the municipal, residential, commercial, industrial and institutional sectors, to Town Meeting.  The Committee prepares a multiyear action plan to achieve the Town sustainable energy goals and revises it as needed.  The Committee works with municipal departments, businesses, institutions, and civic and volunteer organizations to initiate and carry out actions to achieve these goals and coordinates municipal activities with initiatives of these other organizations.   The Committee also prepares an annual Townwide emissions inventory and develops an annual action plan that includes significant planned initiatives by both municipal and community organizations.
