ACEEE has released their 2017 City Energy Efficiency Scorecard for 51 cities across the U.S. The scorecard measures the progress of city policies and programs that save energy while benefiting the environment and promoting economic growth. The top 5 performers were Boston, New York, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Portland.
NEEC and the Smart Buildings Center provide the technical support for the City of Seattle Energy Benchmarking program – one of the city policies that are recognized as a best practice in energy efficiency measures for cities across the country. Other areas that are assessed in the Scorecard are local government operations, community-wide initiatives, buildings, energy and water utilities, and transportation.
