Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

This ordinance was recommended by the Energize Denver Task Force and will cut greenhouse gas emissions in buildings by nearly 80% by 2040. Stakeholders across multiple industries came to consensus on an equitable path to healthier, safer, net zero energy commercial and multifamily buildings. The Energize Denver Task Force recommendations will help guide our work to improve the lives of residents and business owners across the City and reduce emissions over the next 20 years.

The ordinance requires that building owners:

                     Meet specific energy performance targets that achieve at least 30% total energy savings across all buildings by 2030,

                     Partially electrify space and water heating at time of system replacement.

Per the task force’s recommendations, CASR will provide extensive resources and incentives to aid the buildings sector in making this transition, especially building serving under resourced people.
