The Denver City Energy Project (DCEP) is part of a national initiative to cut energy waste in large buildings. Energy used in large commercial and multifamily buildings results in 57% of Denver’s harmful greenhouse gas emissions. DCEP aims to cut that by 18%.
Improving building energy efficiency will not only help reduce these emissions, but also protect Denver’s quality of life and strengthen the economy. Investing an estimated $340 million in improving building energy efficiency would result in 4,000 local jobs and $1.3 billion in energy savings over 10 years.
DCEP encourages buildings to benchmark their energy use, engages tenants to improve energy efficiency into their spaces, and provides resources to improve the efficiency of buildings.
