Climate Smart Buildings Team Lead | Denver Department of Public Health and Environment

Katrina leads the Buildings Team within Denver’s Climate Team in the Department of Public Health and Environment. Through the Energize Denver initiative she ensures Denver achieves its climate goals for buildings – including that buildings use 30% less energy by 2030, use 50% less energy by 2050, have 50% less thermal heating emissions by 2040, and that all new buildings are net zero energy by 2035. Energize Denver includes the Benchmarking requirement, the Energy Program created under Denver’s Green Building Ordinance, the 2019 Building Code Update, and the Energy Smart Leasing Program. Katrina’s 5 years with Denver build on 8 years of previous experience researching building efficiency market growth strategies at Johnson Controls and advocating at the federal level on energy and climate policy.
