Detroit 2030 District Goals

The Detroit 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.
