The Austin 2030 District is a growing collaborative of property owners and managers, professional service providers and community organizations with the goal to keep Austin competitive and ensure a resilient, vibrant city in 2030. To do this, business leaders have committed to reduce the downtown business district’s energy use, water use, and carbon emissions – all while stimulating economic growth and delivering bottom-line benefits.
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.
