The Dallas 2030 District is a private-public initiative to create a ground-breaking high-performance building district in downtown Dallas. The goal of the Dallas 2030 district is to cost-effectively and collaboratively reduce the environmental impact of building construction and operation.  

The Dallas 2030 district is a strategic initiative of the South-central Partnership for Energy Efficiency as a Resource (SPEER), a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. SPEER is providing fiscal sponsorship and technical assistance to ensure that the Dallas 2030 District has the support and resources it needs to successfully meet its targets. 

The Dallas 2030 is actively recruiting members right now. Please contact us to learn more and become part of this initiative.

What is the 2030 Challenge?, by Dallas2030
 

GOALS FOR EXISTING BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE OPERATIONS:

  • Energy Use: A minimum 20% reduction below the National average by 2020 with incremental targets, reaching a 50% reduction by 2030.
  • Water Use: A minimum 20% reduction below the District average by 2020, with incremental targets, reaching a 50% reduction by 2030.
  • Transportation CO2 Emissions: A minimum 20% reduction below the District average by 2020, with incremental targets, reaching a 50% reduction by 2030.

GOALS FOR NEW BUILDINGS, MAJOR RENOVATIONS, AND NEW INFRASTRUCTURE:

  • Energy Use: an immediate 60% reduction below the National average, with incremental targets, reaching carbon neutral by 2030.
  • Water Use: An immediate 50% reduction below the current District average. 
  • Transportation CO2 Emissions: An immeriate 50% reduction below the current District average.

NOTE: These goals represent the combined reductions for all 2030 District buildings. The District energy use is determined by the 2003 Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) and is roughly equivalent to an ENERGY STAR score of 50. The transportation targets are calculated by looking at actual existing travel data within the boundaries of the 2030 District.
