Green Ribbon Commission Recommendations: Building Energy
GRC Recommendations: Quick Start Actions for Building Energy
From heaters to air conditioning units, from stove tops to light fixtures, we ask our buildings to perform many energy-intensive tasks for us. Building energy use accounts for over 20% of Seattle's greenhouse gas emissions. In order to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, we need to make sure our energy comes from clean, low-carbon fuel sources. We also need to improve the overall efficiency of our buildings to get the most of the fuel we do use. We need your help to choose the most important actions to take in the next three years to address building energy.
