Washington D.C. Seeks the Lead in Energy Efficiency

 

The nation’s capital city has some bold plans to be the greenest city in the U.S. The city’s Energy and Sustainability Office recently launched Build Smart D.C., a new website and tracking system that details and shares energy consumption information for every District-owned facility.

 

As part of the Sustainable D.C. initiative, the city has a goal of reducing the energy use in more than half of the 30 million-plus square feet of municipal facilities by 20 percent in twenty months.

 

“We’re trying to embrace truly transparent data to create tremendous savings,” said Sam Brooks, the associate director of the city’s Energy and Sustainability office. “The goal here is to eliminate energy waste and create effective cash flows back to the city.”
