FacilitiesNet Speaks with Stephanie Greene of RMI on Building Electrification Strategies

Earlier this year, Washington became the first state to pass legislation requiring new commercial buildings to go all-electric. This comes after several cities, including New York City and Denver, passed similar legislation, and has pushed a growing number of state and local governments to follow suit. There is no doubt that building electrification will become standard among new commercial buildings in far more places in the coming years, and that existing buildings will likely be required to go all-electric in coming years. Facility managers will need to implement electrification strategies to comply with applicable changes in code.

For an interesting look into what managers should expect, FacilitiesNet recently interviewed Stephanie Greene, managing director of RMI’s carbon-free buildings program. She also discusses how RMI worked with organizations like the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to develop Resource Efficient Decarbonization, a strategic framework that guides owners and developers through the process of retrofitting their buildings in the optimal sequence.
