Through the City Energy Project, a new, joint initiative with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to improve buildings' efficiency in 20 U.S. cities, IMT has hired expert staff to assist cities with their energy efficiency initiatives. City Advisors work directly with city employees in local government offices. They provide essential support in developing and implementing each city's tailored efficiency plan. As part of the City Energy Project network, the advisors share best practices and learn from each other's experience.
