New Mexico Building Decarbonization Roadmap

Overview

With the passage of the Energy Transition Act in 2019, New Mexico joined several Western states in accelerating its commitment to renewable energy and electric grid decarbonization. The Act raises the state’s renewable portfolio standard and requires electric utilities to reach 100% zero carbon resources by 2045.

While these goals are laudable, the Energy Transition Act did not address carbon emissions in the built environment. Residential and commercial building emissions currently account for approximately 4% of New Mexico’s greenhouse gas emissions, yet New Mexico has no policy framework to guide building electrification (see Priority Action Plan, p. 3). The Building Decarbonization Coalition (BDC) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), in conjunction with Gridworks, seek to fill this policy gap. Through focused, collaborative discussions facilitated by Gridworks, BDC and NRDC will engage stakeholders to jointly develop a Building Decarbonization Roadmap for New Mexico. The final Roadmap will serve as a policy guide to establish New Mexico’s commitment to decarbonizing the built environment.
