Energy Efficiency Retrofit Projects

Three city staff installing a Y-strainer as part of a capital HVAC system upgrade.

DEM is working to reduce energy usage and emissions associated with City buildings through both operational improvements and energy efficiency projects. To date, DEM has implemented a broad variety of energy efficiency projects at City facilities, working closely with our agency partners, the City’s Department of Design and Construction, and other partners. Since many of the City’s buildings were built years ago, there are many opportunities to upgrade inefficient lighting and heating, cooling, and ventilation (HVAC) systems with more efficient technology.
