Energy Demand Management (EDM) is a cornerstone of broad decarbonization. EDM reduces the amount of energy consumed by an organization, the associated greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), and the energy costs of an organization. EDM includes tracking an organization's energy use overtime, benchmarking and auditing energy use, and reducing energy use through energy conservation measures.
The following provides tangible actions catalyst communities can take to enable a just transition to decarbonization in this action area. Relevant resources, webinars, and community examples accompany each action below.
