Carbon Free Boston is partnering with the engineering firm Arup to perform a comprehensive analysis of Boston’s building stock and identify potential energy conservation measures. To do this Carbon Free Boston is developing a database of building models that represent Boston’s building stock and use (e.g. single family, 3-decker, office, schools, etc.). Optimal energy conservation measures (additional insulation, heat pumps etc.) will be identified for each building type. The adoption of these measures will be forecasted by modeling the impact of specific policies on building decision makers. In addition, Carbon Free Boston will be evaluating the impact and performance of many of the city’s first movers in energy conservation (universities, hospitals, city buildings) that will lead the way in the city’s mitigation efforts.
