Seattle Clean Buildings Accelerator

Technical Support and Training for Building Owners and Managers

The Seattle Clean Buildings Accelerator is a no-cost technical support and training program prioritized for nonprofits and under-resourced building owners and managers to meet the State of WA Clean Buildings requirements and to reduce emissions, especially buildings that serve or are in BIPOC and frontline communities.1 A team led by Stillwater Energy, which has experience implementing similar programs for SnoPUD and Puget Sound Energy, as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion experience in the context of strategic energy management for buildings will lead this work.
