Many local governments have adopted community-wide goals for increasing energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This set of briefs examines three high-impact energy efficiency policies that can help cities meet these goals. The briefs cover (1) residential energy disclosure mechanisms that add value to efficient homes, (2) commercial and multifamily energy benchmarking, transparency and labeling, and (3) technology-enabled access to transportation data to enable smarter mobility decisions and investments. Each brief features policy goals and benefits, steps for design and adoption, and case studies of local initiatives.
