Buildings & Energy

a file

We spend most of our daily lives—sleeping, working, eating—in buildings. Our homes, offices, grocery stores, places of worship, etc. require a significant amount of energy to ventilate the air, manage temperatures, power our devices, and provide many of the other basic comforts we are accustomed to. The fossil fuels used in buildings and those used to generate the electricity we consume emit a significant amount of GHGs into the atmosphere. As of 2019, buildings represent 56% of our community’s total GHG emissions.
