    Many local governments are setting and meeting ambitious targets aimed at improving energy efficiency in public buildings while encouraging the private sector to do the same. This forum will showcase local case studies on municipal innovation, discuss the needs and trends in the commercial real estate industry, and look ahead at how stakeholders can help exchange knowledge between industry sectors.

    Representatives from the City of Richmond and the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), along with PG&E and consultants from DNV-GL will form a panel session to discuss municipal innovation, commercial building needs, and the nexus between the two, and look ahead at how stakeholders from both arenas can collaborate more intentionally on accelerating market transformation on a community scale.
