Updating Berkeley’s Energy Conservation Ordinances – Using information to Accelerate Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
February 25, 2014 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: 
90-3122
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

While Berkeley's Energy Conservation Ordinances (RECO and CECO) have played important roles in increasing building energy and water efficiency and reducing Berkeley's greenhouse gas emissions for the past 30 years, the policies are out of date. Berkeley is developing a new approach that uses information to accelerate energy improvements, leveraging analytical tools and rate-payer funded incentives to create actionable compelling requirements at specific events or scheduled times. City staff would like to lead a discussion on policy options to achieve deep energy savings that meet the criteria of being valuable, affordable and easy.
