Initial Goals

The Austin 2030 District will pursue a reduction in energy and water consumption against baselines established using federal surveys (CBECS) and verified local utility data. The goal is 50% reduction against a 2003 baseline. 

The District also provides education, resources and guidance for all members to achieve the following: 

  • Track and share accurate usage data in order to aggregate District performance, and improve building management;
  • Establish efficiency planning at the building and/or organizational level;
  • Set reduction and management goals for maximum building performance and longevity;
  • Implement upgrades, commissioning, and best management practices to reach goals.

Individual building performance is never publicized.


There are no news for this district at the moment.
