Helping Cities Lead By Example: the Public Buildings Portfolio Management Initiative

Hundreds of cities, counties, and states around the country have set aggressive energy efficiency and climate goals. However, there is often a disconnect between these bold goals and the day-to-day operations of public buildings. With support from the US Department of Energy, NBI and our partners EcoEdge and Maalka have worked with cities around the country to develop and implement municipal building portfolio strategic energy plans to achieve energy and emissions reductions in public buildings. Join us to hear about the results of this three-year project and to learn about this replicable framework and a wide variety of free, open-source tools and resources available for local governments seeking to lead by example.
