How Denver's Buildings Achieve Climate Action

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges faced by our generation with vast impacts on our planet and public health. Cities are responsible for over 70 percent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and can therefore play a significant role in climate solutions. With grid electricity and natural gas combined, buildings make up around 50% of Denver’s GHG emissions and must be part of this solution. The City and County of Denver has developed a Climate Action Plan and set out strong goals for buildings including 100% renewable electricity with net zero new buildings by 2030 and net zero for all buildings by 2040.

This presentation will start with an overview of what the City and County of Denver is working on this year to develop a building performance policy for the City with the Energize Denver Task Force and a 2021 code update. Group14 will expand on the initiatives focused on existing buildings including benchmarking, efficiency, and electrification. Group14 will also discuss the new construction elements of energy modeling for net zero energy.

Research into the next generation of simulation tools and techniques is being carried out at universities, but much of this information is not transferred to the practitioners. For this SimClub event, graduate students from the University of Colorado-Boulder and the Colorado School of Mines will give short summaries of their current research projects.

Did you attend the IBPSA-World Building Simulation 2019 conference in Rome or the 2019 ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis Conference (BPAC) in Denver and see some really interesting things that you want to share?  Did you miss the conferences but want to catch up on what you missed?

October 24, 2019

Come hang out with your fellow building performance analysts and hear about future SimClub events planned for this year.

Appetizers and your first beverage will be covered by SimClub for this social/networking event.

Achieving Boulder’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets requires moving the City’s energy code to a Net Zero Energy code by 2031.  As a result, the city has developed an energy code roadmap that incrementally increases energy efficiency requirements for residential and commercial structures on a...
