*October 13, 2022 Meeting*

*Energize Denver Update*

The City and County of Denver have developed a Climate Action Plan and set
out strong goals for buildings including all new buildings and homes being
“net zero energy” by 2030 and all existing buildings and homes “net zero
energy” by 2040. To work towards these goals, Denver has passed the
Energize Denver ordinance and International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)
amendments. This presentation will cover the elements of the ordinance, the
timeline for implementation, and the expected results. Group14 will discuss
how this impacts new and existing buildings and what steps building owners
and managers can take to achieve compliance.
