Energy & Water Management

City of Charlottesville's Energy and Water Program Management Logo

The Energy and Water Management Team includes staff from the Department of Public Works in the Environmental Sustainability, Facilities Maintenance, and Facilities Development Divisions. This team supports the need for consistent tracking of our internal City utility usage, in-depth research and review of our facilities’ performance, and implementation of various programs and initiatives aimed at energy and water management. The team’s goals are to help our facilities become more efficient, minimize energy and water excess, and help City staff implement energy and water efficient strategies in the workplace. We are striving to keep Charlottesville a leader in high performance buildings by optimizing the use of energy and water in all of our facilities.
