The City of Westminster has a strategic vision to be “one of the most sustainable cities in America”. The City of Westminster Colorado is developing Downtown Westminster into a high density, mixed-use community of approximately 4 MSF. While Phase 1 of the project is currently underway, a second phase, of approximately 2 MSF of office, hotel and conference center space is in planning. The City is considering implementation of a District Energy system to serve this Phase II area.
Currently, the City of Westminster, CO is seeking a Reduced Energy District Partner to help develop and manage the new downtown energy infrastructure. The City envisions a long-term public private partnership of mutual benefit that will reduce energy costs and use through a range of energy infrastructure systems, financing models, strategic partnerships, community energy planning, and goal setting. The goal is to attract continued development in the downtown, while developing a range of energy resources to reduce consumption and the emissions related to non-renewable fuels. In addition, the City envisions a community education component which creatively and continuously shares information on the Reduced Energy District with visitors to the site and the community it serves.
Proposals are due July 13, 2017
