Promoting energy efficiency in buildings

We work with cities to reduce building energy use. Buildings account for 40 percent of our country's total energy use, and in cities, the percentage can be much higher—up to 75 percent. But cities and states around the U.S. are making huge strides in improving the energy efficiency of their buildings.

IMT is committed to helping them lead the way. We support leaders from across the country as they craft, adopt, and implement policies for high-performance buildings that save both energy and water. IMT helps mayors and other decision makers achieve their sustainability goals, create jobs, and generate long-term demand for efficiency.

Shown above right: Chicago was the ninth U.S. city to pass a law requiring that large buildings' energy use be tracked, or benchmarked. It is one of 10 cities participating in the City Energy Project, a joint initiative of IMT and the Natural Resources Defense Council to improve energy efficiency in buildings.
