Our first meeting of the Big Buildings Energy Savings Working Group on May 21st was a great success!  Members of the building community, nonprofit leaders, government policymakers, and property managers came out to launch the conversation about policies and programs to improve the energy efficiency of New Orleans’ large buildings.  We invite you to join us for the next session of the Big Buildings Energy Savings Working Group on Tuesday, June 5th from 9:30am – 12:00pm.  (Don’t worry if you missed the first session – we’ll do a quick recap before we dive into the new content. )

 

We know that benchmarking (i.e., tracking and monitoring) energy use provides valuable information that helps property owners and managers optimize a building’s performance, and creates a roadmap for greater energy efficiency.  This six-part Big Buildings Energy Savings Working Group will explore ways that New Orleans can take advantage of the economic competitiveness potential of energy efficiency and benchmarking to advance our sustainability goals.  Any action we take now to curb energy use in buildings will lead to decades of saved energy, saved money, and avoided pollution for future New Orleanians.

 

Additional benefits include:

  1. Economic growth, thanks to a more efficient building stock with lower energy costs and new jobs to improve local buildings;
  2. A cleaner environment and better public health, due to reduced carbon pollution and less need for new energy infrastructure;
  3. Smarter markets and government, who will be able to use real building-energy data to value energy efficiency and craft more targeted policies and incentives; and
  4. A model of innovative and pragmatic leadership that governments around the country and the world can follow.

In the June 5th session (at the Propeller Incubator, 4035 Washington Ave), we’ll discuss ways that different building types and sizes can achieve the most benefit from a variety of energy efficiency policies and programs.  Your input and expertise are critical to helping us craft local solutions that provide the greatest positive impact on our big buildings.
