The City of Boston, recently named a top U.S. city for energy efficiency, and Eversource announced the launch of the Boston Building Energy Retrofit Hub, a new online resource that connects Boston building owners, facility managers, and tenants of large- and medium-sized buildings that are over 35,000 square feet or 35 units to Eversource's energy efficiency services, incentives, and technical support to complete energy-saving projects. Buildings account for more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions in the city, and the partnership is the latest initiative in Boston's goal to reduce emissions and become carbon neutral by 2050.
"The Boston Building Energy Retrofit Hub is an important resource as we strive to achieve carbon neutrality and mitigate the effects of climate change to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for the City of Boston," said the City of Boston Chief of Environment, Energy, and Open Space Chris Cook. "Hands-on support and access to the latest information, trends, and specialized building technologies can be a catalyst for change. The resources and energy expertise offered through the partnership with Eversource is designed to drive greater awareness of the benefits of energy efficiency and more participation in these nationally-recognized programs.”
"The City of Boston is a top performer in energy efficiency because building owners, operators and tenants are actively collaborating and implementing new solutions to reduce energy use and cut carbon emissions," said Eversource Vice President of Energy Efficiency Tilak Subrahmanian. "The Hub is a strong example of how we're working with customers to share expertise and streamline access to incentives and programs that make energy efficiency projects achievable. We're proud to support this collaboration and help the city and businesses achieve their energy efficiency goals."
