IMT supports a national transition to a clean, efficient power system that leverages high-performance buildings to achieve equitable grid decarbonization and resilience.

Areas of Focus

We help build stakeholder coalitions that bring local perspective into utility regulatory process. We also work with partners to expand the purpose of state-level utility regulation to include decarbonization and social equity.

Sample work includes:

Read our latest blogs and resources on engaging public utility commissions. 

We explore how high-performance buildings can serve as active participants in the grid that advance decarbonization and electrification and support a more flexible, resilient grid through demonstration projects and pathways to scale.

We work with stakeholders to proactively engage utilities to support building performance standards through energy efficiency programs and incentives, provision of energy and carbon data based on real-time use and grid mix, and equitable distribution of resources to advance building performance policies.

We help building owners, tenants, & local government leaders engage their utilities to increase access to building performance data, make smart business decisions, & improve investments to meet property & community needs.

Resource Highlight


How Cities Can Mitigate the Impact of the Gas System

This resource aims to deepen city leaders’ understanding of the interaction between gas distribution systems and local climate objectives. It specifically addresses critical components of the energy system, focusing not only on emissions, but also on the affordability, reliability, health, safety, and equity implications of the gas transition. City leaders can use this research as a guide to understand the key steps needed for an effective transition and how they can use their powers to help their communities move beyond gas.
