City and county climate officials announced the policy in a blueprint for achieving net-zero energy status in Denver’s new building stock, released on Jan. 26. In the plan, Denver’s Office of Climate Action, Sustainability and Resiliency, or CASR, committed to updating the building code. This drives electrification in new homes and commercial real estate over the next decade.
The plan makes Denver the latest U.S. city to pursue universal all-electric construction. Dozens of California communities have adopted electrification ordinances since 2019. Efforts are underway to restrict new natural gas hookups in Massachusetts, Seattle and New York City.
