San Francisco’s Climate Action Strategy is: 0, 50, 100, Roots. That means Zero Waste, 50% of all trips via sustainable modes, 100% renewable energy citywide and using ‘roots’ to pull carbon out of the atmosphere into trees and plants. In support of the Climate Action Strategy, Barry Hooper leads development of the San Francisco Green Building Code – including the city’s requirements that new buildings achieve GreenPoint Rated or LEED standards, and solar PV or green roofs. Barry also manages the Existing Commercial Buildings Energy ordinance, which requires annual benchmarking of energy performance and an action plan for cost-effective energy efficiency improvement. He is Technical Advisor to the Bay Area Regional Energy Network Codes & Standards program, an active member of the C40 Cities Private Sector Energy Efficiency Network, US DOE State and Local Energy Action Network (SEE-Action), and represents local governments on California’s statewide Energy Data Access Committee.

Prior to joining SF Environment, Barry served as Green Building Coordinator for the City of San Jose and managed the Silicon Valley Energy Watch energy efficiency program. At the University of California at Santa Barbara he earned master’s degrees in Environmental Science and Management, as well as Geography.


In 2011, San Francisco was the fourth city in the United States to require commercial buildings to benchmark and publicly report annual energy use, and the second to require an audit or retrocommissioning. Today, benchmarking has been institutionalized in 23 US cities, embracing the idea that measurement is a prerequisite for management. Barry Hooper from SF Department of Environment will present on what information has been collected; how it’s put to use; challenges and opportunities for the program; how energy data disclosure connects to incentive programs and financing; and look forward to possible implications for new construction and meeting San Francisco’s greenhouse gas mitigation goals by accelerating improvement in the performance of the city’s built environment.
