The ‘Energize Denver’ Task Force, facilitated by CBI Senior Mediator Ryan Golten, proposed major, new policy recommendations to transition Denver's 17,000 buildings to achieve net zero energy by 2040. The recommendations focus in particular on building equity into the energy transition, in part through the inclusion of intensive support and early incentives for under-resourced neighborhoods and strong provisions for creating good, local jobs to enable the transition. 

The recommendations are the culmination of eight concentrated months of collaboration and conversations among diverse stakeholders, including building owners and managers, local utility and energy providers, resident and tenant advocates, non-profits, labor and workforce representatives, and environment and clean energy advocates.
