The buildings where we live and work present a massive untapped opportunity for energy cost savings, economic development and reductions in greenhouse gas pollution. The goal of the Denver City Energy Project is to unlock $1.3 billion in energy savings and 800,000 metric tons of GHG emission reductions, the equivalent of 73,000 homes energy use for one year.
The first step in improving energy performance is to measure it. Benchmark your building using ENERGY STAR's Portfolio Manager tool and then share your score with the city to enroll in the Denver City Energy Project. The city is leading by example by benchmarking over 7 million square feet of its own buildings and committing to cutting their energy use 20% by 2020. Printable summary of project and enrollment
