The “Getting to Net Zero Task Force” is charged with advancing the goal of putting Cambridge on the trajectory towards becoming a “net zero community”, with focus on carbon emissions from building operations. This includes reducing energy use intensity of buildings and taking advantage of opportunities to harvest energy from renewable sources. This committee will be working collaboratively with a team of technical consultants with support from City staff to examine strategies and develop recommendations that address the following topics: reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the built environment; improve energy efficiency and conservation in existing and new buildings; support renewable energy generation both on- and off- site; and best practices to engage and educate users and influence occupant behavior.
