How Denver's Buildings Achieve Climate Action
*How Denver's Buildings Achieve Climate Action*
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges faced by our generation
with vast impacts on our planet and public health. Cities are responsible
for over 70 percent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and can therefore
play a significant role in climate solutions. With grid electricity and
natural gas combined, buildings make up around 50% of Denver’s GHG
emissions and must be part of this solution. The City and County of Denver
has developed a Climate Action Plan and set out strong goals for buildings
including 100% renewable electricity with net zero new buildings by 2030
and net zero for all buildings by 2040.
This presentation will start with an overview of what the City and County
of Denver is working on this year to develop a building performance policy
for the City with the Energize Denver Task Force and a 2021 code update.
Group14 will expand on the initiatives focused on existing buildings
including benchmarking, efficiency, and electrification. Group14 will also
discuss the new construction elements of energy modeling for net zero
