Burlington Releases Net Zero Energy Roadmap (Ind. Report)
City of Burlington
Date: 2019-09-11
In Vermont, the city of Burlington (pop. 43,000 +-) and the Burlington Electric Department (BED) are reporting release of the city's Net Zero Energy Roadmap, a study of four strategic pathways for the city to become a Net Zero Energy city by 2030. The City also reported it has begun putting the report's strategies into action and has launched a slate of new programs and initiatives designed to help Burlington achieve it Net Zero Energy climate goal.

To reach Net Zero Energy by 2030, the study calls for Burlington to reduce total energy use and increase electrification across the electric, heating, and ground transportation sectors, while continuing to source all of its electricity from renewable generation. The Roadmap identifies important criteria to achieve that goal, including: efficient electric buildings, increased adoption of electric Vehicles (EVs), implementing a district energy system that could reduce fossil fuel consumption by 15 pct, and developing alternative transportation systems and programs.

In response to the city program, Burlington Electric Department announced a slate of new programs and incentives that build on existing initiatives and focus on both building electrification and energy efficiency and transportation, lowering energy consumption and electric rates.
