Existing Building Electrification: City of Sacramento
Spring 2021 - ABT 212
The City of Sacramento has indicated that they intend to be a leader, not only for their own community members, but for surrounding communities and California as a whole. Therefore, the City of Sacramento has committed to electrify 25% of their existing municipally owned building stock of roughly 400 buildings by 2030. To accomplish this goal, the City tasked a team of students in the Pathway to Zero Net Energy course at University of California, Davis (hereafter known as the Electrification Team) to curate information on electrification benefits, policy, barriers, and best practices, as well as provide recommendations for retrofit strategy procurement. The level of detail of available data was insufficient for the Electrification Team to curate a comprehensive electrification strategy. This report intends to serve as a tool for existing building electrification strategy configuration.
