 Q2 Progress

Reported March 2022

The combined building and energy sectors account for the highest percentage of GHG emissions in Dallas (64%). While the City has committed to using 100 percent renewable energy, there is a desire to convert from using renewable energy credits to local on and off-site generation. In FY 21-22, 9 actions from this sector will be initiated, with 28 identified milestones. These actions include expansion of existing programs and efforts, as well as updates to existing codes and ordinances. Implementation of these milestones will involve collaboration between the following City departments:

  • Office of Environmental Quality & Sustainability

  • ​Building Services

 

Note: Actions marked as ongoing span multiple fiscal years, meaning efforts will be carried out continuously and therefore will not be marked complete until the end of this fiscal year.


Year Two Work Plan

Complete: 1  Milestone

 

E3: Continue partnership with public utility companies on an intensive program on renewable energy options

  • Meet with Oncor and/or local REPs to discuss collaborating on a campaign to promote renewable energy in commercial sectors
