The BlueGreen Alliance | Roadmap to Navigating Federal Funding for Public Buildings is targeted to state and local agencies and other stakeholders interested in upgrading Municipal, University, School and Hospital (MUSH) buildings using federal funding opportunities from BIL and IRA.
We estimate that across the world’s most developed cities at least 90% of office buildings are over 10 years old. Most of these assets would not meet today’s energy efficiency standards for new builds and very few have firm plans in place to prepare for even more stringent regulations on the horizon as governments pivot efforts to decarbonize existing buildings.
This fact sheet describes current mandatory energy codes in terms of air leakage in residential and nonresidential buildings. In addition to mapping air sealing locations, it includes information on performance credits for envelope air leakage testing.
The report, Why cooling is key: How to decarbonize buildings with one weird trick, analyzes data on the shipments of heating and cooling technology in five states, and finds converting central AC unit sales to heat pumps can dramatically accelerate the decarbonization of homes while boosting grid resilience, lowering technology and installations costs, and improving the health and safety of the nation’s housing stock, if policymakers act quickly to harness this market.
This report provides the governor and Legislature an analysis of energy issues affecting Washington residents and businesses, along with an update on recommendations made in the 2021 State Energy Strategy.
This paper focuses on the proposed use of green hydrogen for heating homes and commercial buildings and the need to consider the implications for clean electricity demand and therefore supply, which its production would entail.
This report provides an in-depth analysis of electrification of single-family homes and individually metered multi-family homes with forced air heating systems in Peoples Gas’ service territory in Chicago, Illinois.
This report explains how federal agencies can effectively implement the IRA’s building provisions, recommends complementary federal policies to accelerate building decarbonization. It also outlines how state policymakers can leverage the new law to reduce building sector pollution, increase building efficiency, and lower consumer energy bills.
This report analyzes the technical, economic, and environmental implications of retrofitting fossil-gas-fired space heating and domestic hot water systems in a prototypical 50,000 square foot office building.
This report on building decarbonization discusses key programs in the IRA that the All In coalition should use to create a cleaner, healthier, and more economically vibrant country and built environment.
The Climate Action Framework sets a vision for how Minnesota will address and prepare for climate change. It identifies immediate, near-term actions that Minnesotans must take to achieve their long-term goal of a carbon-neutral, resilient, and equitable future for the state.
