Energize Denver: New Requirements for Businesses 5000-25,000 sq. ft. and Beyond
Own a Building 25,000 sq. ft. or larger? Your first compliance deadline is less than one year away!
In a nutshell, the Energize Denver ordinance is the most recent iteration of Denver’s 80×50 climate plan. The primary focus of this new ordinance is to reduce 80% of Denver’s greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Most new energy regulations will affect businesses differently depending on a number of factors—and when it comes to the Energize Denver ordinance, this primarily comes down to square footage.
Because the Energize Denver Task Force found that 51% of Denver’s GHG emissions are produced by large multi-family and commercial buildings, these policies prioritize buildings 25,000 sq. ft. or more.
Along with EUI requirements for large commercial facilities, the ordinance includes a number of new requirements and options for meeting those requirements. Visit our Energize Denver page for an in-depth explanation of Denver’s new energy regulations—we’ve included the most important details below:
