Energy can account for as much as 10 percent of a local government’s annual operating budget, a proportion that is likely to grow as energy prices rise.

- Local governments tend to have a small number of large energy intensive facilities, followed by a very long tail of smaller facilities
- Energy as an issue cuts across multiple functions including planning, finance, asset management, and sustainability, and activities need to be coordinated.
- Most local governments have made significant investment in on-site energy generation systems, often across a large number of properties
- Local governments have a much stronger imperative to engage occupants and external stakeholders than other property owners.

- Many local governments have made public commitments to reduce energy use and emissions, which they need to report against
