Mayors from 10 Cities Unite to Cut Energy in Buildings

The mayors from 10 US cities will work with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Institute for Market Transformation to significantly boost energy efficiency in their buildings. The following 10 cities will be the City Energy Project’s first participants: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia and Salt Lake City.

Funded by a partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and The Kresge Foundation, the City Energy Project (CEP) will help the 10 cities craft their own customized plans for boosting energy efficiency in their buildings.

The CEP is projected to cut a combined total of 5 million to 7 million tons of carbon emissions annually. And the CEP is projected to save ratepayers a combined total of nearly $1 billion annually on their energy bills (at current prices).

A new survey of nearly 300 cities that was released in conjunction with the US Conference of Mayors 82nd Winter Meeting in Washington, DC, this month found that energy efficiency remains a top priority among US mayors even in an era of tough budgets and rising costs.
