Evaluation of U.S. Building Energy Benchmarking and Transparency Programs: Attributes, Impacts, and Best Practices

U.S. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory releases report on energy efficiency benchmarking and transparency programs.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory released a report designed to summarize state and local energy benchmarking and transparency (B&T) policies in compliance with the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2015. The report is designed to summarize the B&T policies for 24 state and local jurisdictions that, as of December 2016, have policies designed to require owners of privately owned commercial buildings, multifamily buildings, or both to comply with a B&T policy. The report is also designed to examine 13 additional jurisdictions that have policies designed to require only publically owned buildings to comply with a B&T policy.
