Better Buildings Challenge
LABBC, IBI Group, Arup and CenTrio Energy partnered with ULI-LA under the Urban Land Institute’s Net Zero Imperative to identify real-world strategies to develop a “distributed district energy system” in Downtown Los Angeles, beginning with a central plant in the heart of Bunker Hill.
Enhancing and expanding a district energy plant in Bunker Hill could unlock a range of economic, environmental and social benefits with the potential for transformative impact, a report published recently by the Urban Land Institute’s Los Angeles District Council (ULI-LA) demonstrates.
This conclusion was reached by a multidisciplinary panel of local experts tasked with identifying real-world strategies to develop a “distributed district energy system” in Downtown Los Angeles, beginning with a central plant located in the heart of the Bunker Hill neighborhood. Co-hosted by ULI-LA and the Los Angeles Better Buildings Challenge (LABBC) with meaningful support and participation from IBI Group, Arup and CenTrio Energy, among others, the panel hit on major barriers and compelling opportunities, developed new insights and uncovered exciting synergies.
