Salt Lake City – BOMA Utah has been invited to work with Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker and his staff on The Skyline Project.
The Skyline Project is part of the City Energy Project, a joint effort led by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT). The City Energy Project is designed to help mayors develop plans for tackling energy waste in large, existing buildings. The eventual goal is to save $1 billion in energy costs annually across the ten participating cities.
With $9 million in seed funding from Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Kresge Foundation, two leading advocacy organizations have set up a multi-year effort to boost efficiency in buildings across 10cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia and Salt Lake City.
“Our goal is to promote energy efficiency, conservation and peak consumption reduction; prevent mandates from being imposed on commercial building and property owners; and provide incentives to building owners to improve pre-existing and older buildings,” said Lorrie Ostlind, president of BOMA Utah.
