Katrina Managan is the Senior Advisor on Energy Efficiency for the City and County of Denver’s Department of Environmental Health. She advises and supports the City on the development and implementation of programs and policies designed to advance energy efficiency in Denver’s commercial and multi-family real estate. Programs she leads include the Denver City Energy Project Benchmarking Program as well as the Lease for Efficiency Challenge. In addition, she supports the City’s new Energize Denver initiative, which aims to improve the energy efficiency of existing commercial and multi-family buildings in Denver 10% by the end of 2020 and double that in the following decade. Investing an estimated $340 million in improving building energy efficiency in Denver would result in $1.3 billion in energy savings over 10 years. In turn, these energy savings would result in the creation of 340 permanent, new, good, local jobs. Energize Denver will make Denver a national leader in energy-efficient buildings and result in wins for our local economy.
