Collaboration to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Improve Energy Efficiency Defined
By CP Editorial Staff October 2007 - Energy EfficiencyThe Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International and the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) defined their collaboration to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the world’s large cities, as well as throughout major national and international real estate portfolios.
Among the initiatives, BOMA will work with CCI to identify, introduce and encourage BOMA’s members to participate in the CCI Building Retrofit Program. BOMA will also work with CCI to expand the BOMA Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP) to include information on the CCI Building Retrofit Program. The BEEP training will be available to all CCI Building Retrofit Program cities by the first quarter of 2008.
The collaboration will identify best practices or standard models for energy performance contracting to reduce process and transactional time and cost, as well as remove barriers to participation.
It will also promote policies that stimulate the rapid implementation of building energy efficiency, distributed energy, and renewable energy production.
