Elevate Buildings is a Salt Lake City initiative which began in 2016 to identify ways the City could increase energy efficiency, while bolstering economic development, improving air quality, and decreasing energy waste.
Over 18 months, the Department of Sustainability collected feedback from industry experts, local utilities, the commercial real estate community, the public, and other cities. The conclusions drawn from the Elevate Buildings engagement process shaped the final Energy Benchmarking & Transparency Ordinance, as well as the energy efficiency programs offered through the City, and the energy data automation services offered by Rocky Mountain Power and Dominion Energy.
