Energy-Efficient Operations and Maintenance

To realize the greatest energy usage and emissions reductions from the City’s capital investments, it is critical that the City’s buildings be in a state of good repair and operating as efficiently as possible even before these investments are made. To this end, DEM works to support operations and maintenance best practices across the City’s portfolio of building, with a focus on addressing deferred maintenance issues for the worst-performing, most carbon-intensive buildings.
