  2. GREEN BUILDING PROGRESS Greenhouse Gas Emissions per Sector 2006 2016 2013 8.03 MTCO2e 7.52 MTCO2e 10.2 MTCO2e Data received from DOEE’S Urban Sustainability Administration @DOEE_DC


  4. THE DISTRICT’S PERFORMANCE: ENERGY STAR, 2014-2017 ENERGY STAR’s #2 Top Metro Area in the Nation in 2017 GHG Emissions Prevented with ENERGY STAR Buildings Cumulative Cost Savings from ENERGY STAR Buildings Emissions Prevented (MTCO2e) Cost Savings (millions of dollars) Data received from ENERGY STAR website @DOEE_DC

  5. THE DISTRICT’S PERFORMANCE: LEADERSHIP IN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN (LEED) 117 District buildings received LEED Certifications in 2017 LEED Certifications by Type 2014-2017 LEEDCertificationsbyYear Certified Projects Certified Projects Data received from the US Green Building Council @DOEE_DC

  6. BENCHMARKING Who Must Report? Benchmarking Reporting Process @DOEE_DC

  7. BENCHMARKING IMPLEMENTATION % of Complete Reports Received 2014 - 2017 (Public & Private Buildings) Calendar Year Data received from DOEE’s Energy Administration @DOEE_DC

  8. PUBLIC BUILDING PERFORMANCE Energy Benchmarking – Public sector key trends • Public Buildings saw an 7% decrease in weather-normalized Site Energy Use Intensity (EUI) from 2013-2017. EUI is a measure of energy use. From 2013-2017: • K-12 public schools Site EUI decreased 10.46% • District multifamily housing Site EUI decreased 7.44% Data received from DOEE’s Energy Administration @DOEE_DC

  9. PUBLIC BUILDING PERFORMANCE Data received from DOEE’s Energy Administration @DOEE_DC

  10. PUBLIC BUILDING PERFORMANCE BY SECTOR Weather-normalized Site EUI for Public Buildings by Sector N=107 Buildings Weather Normalized Site EUI (kBtu/ft²) Data received from DOEE’s Energy Administration @DOEE_DC

  11. PRIVATE BUILDING PERFORMANCE Energy Benchmarking – Private sector key trends • Private Buildings saw an 5.9% decrease in weather-normalized Site Energy Use Intensity from 2013-2017. From 2013-2017: • Office buildings’ Site EUI decreased by 8.82% • Multifamily housing buildings’ Site EUI decreased by 2.5% • Hotels’ Site EUI decreased by 6.99% @DOEE_DC

  12. PRIVATE BUILDING PERFORMANCE Data received from DOEE’s Energy Administration @DOEE_DC

  13. PRIVATE BUILDING PERFORMANCE BY SECTOR:OFFICE BUILDINGS N=259 Buildings 8.8%decrease from 2013 to 2017 Data received from DOEE’s Energy Administration @DOEE_DC

  14. PRIVATE BUILDING PERFORMANCE BY SECTOR:MULTIFAMILY HOUSING N=187 Buildings 2.5% decrease from 2013 to 2017 Data received from DOEE’s Energy Administration @DOEE_DC

  15. BUILDING GREEN: EXEMPLARY PRIVATE PROJECT The American Society of Interior Designers headquarters is the first space in the world to earn both LEED and WELL Platinum Certification • ASID Headquarters • The sustainability features include: • Biophilic design strategies to improve air quality • Circadian lighting system to expand efficiency and mimic natural daylight • A digital dashboard that tracks metrics on the workplace’s environmental performance • Sound masking systems • Rigorous water quality standards Project accomplishments @DOEE_DC

  16. ENERGY PERFORMANCE SPOTLIGHT 1500 K St NW shows that older buildings can still achieve major energy reductions • 1500 K St NW • Built: 1928 • ENERGY STAR Score: 81 • 2017 Site EUI: 53.6 kBtu/ft² • 2016-17 Energy Reduction: 28% • LEED Certification: Gold • Energy Upgrades: • New HVAC Systems • Smart destination elevators • Digital LED lighting @DOEE_DC

  17. PRIVATE BUILDING PERFORMANCE No Green Building Act exemptions were granted in 2017 Exemption requests were submitted for issues such as: • The use of gross square footage as measured by the tax assessment by the Office of Tax and Revenue as opposed to that in an appraisal • Projects being completed in phased construction • Questions around the definition of substantial improvement @DOEE_DC

  18. THE GREEN BUILDING FUND • The Green Building Fund supports: • Improved sustainability performance outcomes • 15.5 staff positions across DOEE and DCRA • Education, training, and outreach to the public and private sectors on green building practices • Seed funding for sustainability projects in the District • Overcoming barriers to achieving energy efficient buildings @DOEE_DC


  20. POLICY MILESTONES 2019 2018 2030 2026 2021 Building code updates to require all new buildings achieve net-zero energy use or better Updates D.C.’s city-wide sustainability plan to reflect changes in policies, programs and technologies. Establishes minimum energy performance standards to lower site EUI and help the District meet short and long term climate goals Moves towards net zero emissions for new construction and energy retrofits for existing buildings Pledges that all new buildings will be net-zero carbon by 2030 @DOEE_DC

  22. GLOSSARY • Energy Use Intensity (EUI) represents a building’s energy use in terms of its size. It is expressed in energy per square foot per year. A low EUI means a high energy performance, while a high EUI signifies a low energy performance. • Weather-normalized is a process by which data is cleaned. The data is processed to reflect energy use as it would have been if the weather experienced was the 30 year average temperatures. Weather-normalized data is used to eliminate outliers and to ensure that data can be compared. • Site EUI represents the total heat and electricity used by the building. It is a reflection of the energy bought directly for use at a building. • Source EUI represents the total amount of raw fuel that is needed for a building to operate. It is a reflection of the total energy consumed including that from delivery and production losses. Definitions pulled from EPA’s energy star website @DOEE_DC
