Seattle City Releases Data on City-Owned Building Energy Use

The City of Seattle is providing the public a closer look at the energy use of City-owned buildings in a new report, Seattle Municipal Buildings 2011 – 2012 Energy Use Performance Report. The report released in May describes City efforts to evaluate the energy efficiency of 6.2 million square feet of City-owned and operated building space. The report also details actions the City is taking to improve the energy efficiency of its facilities.

“We hope that sharing the City’s results from evaluating our buildings’ energy use encourages other owners to do the same,” said Jill Simmons, Director of the Office of Sustainability & Environment. “Taking a close look at the energy performance of our facilities helps identify cost-effective opportunities to save energy and free up taxpayer resources for other important City services.” Read more about the report.
