Denver Launches Energy Efficiency Plan for Commercial Buildings

Posted October 29, 2014 at 5:00am

The Denver Post reports on a new city energy efficiency program: “The Denver City Energy Project is targeting Denver’s 6,045 commercial and multifamily buildings of more than 10,000 square feet. The city estimates there are $1.3 billion in energy savings to be harvested from the buildings.”  

“‘Addressing climate change is one of the city’s goals, and buildings account for 64 percent of the city’s greenhouse gases,’ said Doug Linkhart, executive director of the Denver Department of Environmental Health. ‘But there are multiple benefits.'”  

“The energy project is kicking off with 57 buildings joining the voluntary program.”
