Jason Biondi is among a three person team of experts chosen by Florida International University (FIU) to work with The Energy and Climate Partnership of The Americas (ECPA) to assist three municipalities in South America and the Caribbean incorporate energy efficiency policies to produce exemplary pilot works that could spread to other cities and regions. The three cities chosen are Goiania, Brazil, Valdivia/Los Rios in Chile, and Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago. This project is supported by a generous grant of the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs. The grant supports work to lower energy consumption in municipal buildings through the development and implementation of sound energy efficiency and policies. In each city, FIU ECPA has partnered with a local university to help with this endeavor.
