Commercial and Energy UseBenchmarking Energy for Energy Efficiency

The City of New York passed a series of laws known as the “Greener, Greater Buildings Plan” to improve energy and water efficiency of New York City’s largest existing buildings. As part of this plan, Local Law 84 was implemented requiring all buildings in New York City over 50,000 square feet to submit an annual energy benchmark providing their yearly energy consumption.

All benchmark reports are due annually on May 1.

We’re here to help

Energy benchmarking helps building owners and managers understand their current building’s energy use and monitor performance over time. It allows for comparisons among similar building types and helps identify which ones could operate more efficiently.
