The trend of looking at energy consumption and efficiency at a district scale, comprised of multiple city blocks, is gaining interest in both the academic and professional world. Energy benchmarking information is making its way into master-planning efforts, while projecting energy efficiency on future developments is on the radar of both utility companies and city offices. This week’s BAGI session will explore the implications of what planning for energy districts might look like for Boise and its “Central Addition” district, which stretches from Broadway to Capital in between Front and Myrtle. This district has been the focus of multiple organizations who are trying to imagine what this scale of analysis might mean for the future of sustainability and energy efficiency in Boise, Idaho.
