ON AN URBAN SCALE
What if the United States could develop a “new” supply of energy?
The nation’s commercial and residential buildings currently consume 40% of the nation’s primary energy supply, but much of that energy is
lost due to inefficiency. Preventing that energy loss makes more energy available to supply other needs.
Founded through a 2010 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, Energize Phoenix aims to eliminate up to 50,000 metric tons of carbon emissions a year, create up to 2,000 green jobs, and transform energy use along a 10-mile stretch of the Metro Light Rail system designated
as the Energize Phoenix Corridor.
