EIT Overview

The Cincinnati 2030 District Energy Impact Team (EIT) was formed in March 2020 to support building owners and managers in achieving their 50% energy reduction goals by the year 2030 by both reducing energy consumption and shifting to renewables. EIT members commit to supporting the 2030 District by:

  1. Developing programs to help reduce energy consumption or offer renewables to 2030 District Members.
  2. Supporting identifying sources for funding to continue the progress.
  3. Developing educational programming to support 2030 District members to reach their goals.

The EIT group norms are:

  1. We agree to support EIT by meeting every month with regular attendance in at least 50% of EIT Meetings recognizing that commitment is challenging during these times.
  2. We are representing the greater good of the community and the 2030 District members.
  3. We support the 2030 District by offering our expertise, organizational resources, and personal connections as appropriate.
  4. We are all approaching the agreed-upon goals and related challenges rather than our personal goals.
  5. We offer our expertise and resources to support the group outside of meetings as appropriate.

Since its inception, the EIT and its members have supported 2030 District members on various programmatic efforts to help building members reduce energy, including:

The EIT comprises 2030 District Members and Partners whose work directly supports the 50% reduction goal of the District with knowledge and expertise in advancing energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainability in the built environment. Check out the recording below for a recent example of EIT meetings.

EIT Resources

2030 Member Question Bank

The 2030 District Energy Impact Team created the Member Question Bank as a resource for 2030 Building members to pose and compile questions to the EIT on specific strategies, tactics, or methods to support members in achieving their building(s) reduction goals. While the focus of the EIT is on energy-specific issues, the knowledge and expertise extend to other 2030 pillars, including water and transportation-related infrastructure topics.

Questions will be compiled monthly and directed to participants during the EIT meeting held on the second Wednesday of each month. EIT members will add responses and supplemental resources to the question bank on an ongoing basis for member dissemination. Response times will vary depending on the timing and complexity of questions received.
