Duluth’s Energy Plan is centered around metrics: by 2050, we plan to make an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from municipal operations compared to an emissions analysis done in 2008. This means that over the next 33 years, we need to reduce annual emissions by 10% of 2008 levels – that’s about 15,000 tons of CO2 – every four years, or every mayoral term. This 15,000 ton GHG reduction is translated into various real-world changes that would have equivalent GHG reductions in the image below (produced by the EPA’s GHG Equivalencies Calculator):
Perhaps the most important part of implementing this plan is the use of sound, scientific metrics to track trends in GHG emissions from City operations. Based on information from local utilities and the EPA, the City has come up with estimates for CO2 equivalent (CO2e) emissions associated with each unit of electricity, water, gas, and steam consumed or saved. A calculator to show these estimates is provided here.
There are four key parts of the City’s strategy for achieving the goals set in the Energy Plan: policy, conservation & efficiency, renewables, and utilities.
Currently, there are there three proposed projects that fall under this category, all large-scale operations that would improve the carbon footprint of utilities in Duluth.
