The City Energy Project plans to significantly increase energy efficiency in buildings in 10 major U.S. cities. Buildings are the cities’ biggest source of energy demand and carbon pollution. Bloomberg Philanthropies, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Kresge Foundation will fund the project. The Natural Resources Defense Council and the Institute of Market Transformation will be managing the project. The 10 cities include:
- Kansas City
- Salt Lake City
- Los Angeles
The project will provide each city funds to hire a full-time consultant to help the city implement a customized plan that builds on each city’s strength. Consultants will also facilitate interaction between the 10 cities to share different tactics that worked. Some key strategies include aligning financial incentives for energy efficiency and ensuring that building systems function optimally.
