Case Study Spotlight
How California got its Roadmap to Decarbonize Buildings
In 2018 the Building Decarbonization Coalition partnered with Gridworks to develop A Roadmap to Decarbonize California’s Buildings, a path forward for California to assertively, efficiently, and equitably decarbonize California’s buildings. The Coalition, including industry, advocacy, government experts, and private sector leaders, worked together to determine its shared goals and priorities. Gridworks facilitated their successful collaboration and produced the resulting Roadmap.
At least 26% of California’s end use greenhouse gas emissions are produced in buildings, primarily in heating space and water. While the state has made significant progress removing emissions from power generation through a transition to clean energy, progress from the diffuse and challenging building sector has been limited. In 2018, a plan for tackling this challenge was needed. The plan needed to advance the use of clean, renewable electricity in buildings, taking the place of emissions from burning conventional gas. The strategy needed to educate customers, equipment and service providers, and policy-makers on why building decarbonization was imperative and why they should act now to address the challenge.
