Welcome to Strategic Initiatives, Where Tomorrow Matters
Strategic Initiatives is committed to efficient energy management and sustainability initiatives for the City and County of Denver.
Approximately 90% of Strategic Initiatives' (SI) overall budget is for energy and utility expenses. The 2012 budget was based on the previous year’s expenses, and was adjusted for new facilities and utility rate increases.
Some Recent Highlights:
The City’s Sustainability Fund is used to fund projects and studies on City facilities that improve energy performance, reduce operational and utility costs, and enhance occupant comfort. The fund is managed by SI and funded through a combination of an annual appropriation of approximately $190,000 as well as utility rebates generated by energy-efficiency projects.
In 2012 the City received over $400,000 in utility rebates, all of which were reinvested in new energy efficiency and sustainability projects. Some of the projects funded include:
