MWG Buildings Ad Hoc Group

On April 28, 2020, the Mitigation Work Group (MWG) co-chairs agreed to create an ad hoc group of volunteers, both members and non-members of the MWG, focused on developing recommendations for decarbonizing buildings in Maryland. The group’s primary objectives, which come from the MWG’s 2020 Work Plan, are to:
  • Analyze and determine specific targets and timelines for decreasing emissions from residential and commercial buildings; 
  • Analyze and identify specific mechanisms for decreasing emissions from residential and commercial buildings;
The group will present its recommendations​ to the Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Workgroup of the Commission on September 24, 2020.
