    • Net Zero Task Force Working Group- Regulation and Planning Approaches

      City Hall Annex, 4th Floor Conference Room, 344 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139

      The Net Zero Task Force Working Group on Regulation and Planning Approaches will explore the use of regulatory and other policy tools in driving a variety of actions supporting low carbon construction, energy retrofits and uptake of renewable energy. Regulatory tools can influence market transformation at the building level, and at the neighborhood and community scales. Regulations and policies requiring or encouraging, for example, passive design, energy efficiency improvements to buildings, audits, commissioning and minimum thresholds for renewable energy technologies will help move the dial toward deep emission reductions from buildings. This Working Group will assess best practices and recommend a set of regulatory tools and approaches determined to be most effective in the Cambridge context.

    • Incentives and Financing Tools Working Group- Net Zero Task Force

      City Hall Annex, 4th Floor Conference Room, 344 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139

      The Net Zero Task Force Working Group on Incentives & Financing Tools is focused on identifying building sectors that offer the most opportunities for energy savings or renewable energy generation, but for which the greatest barriers to action exist. While energy efficiency retrofits and low carbon construction result in energy savings and financial paybacks in the near and long term, financing tools and incentives are used to offset the issues around upfront costs of implementing these practices. This Working Group will develop a series of recommendations for how financing tools and/or could be most effectively introduced to motivate action among building owners. The group can identify specific program models, target audiences, delivery methods and potential partnerships or opportunities to leverage existing programs.
