New York City- Building Energy Benchmarking Law: Acting On the Results
Thursday, September 24, 2015 | 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
No Fee

Sponsoring Committee(s): Environmental Law Committee, Michael G. Mahoney, Chair

Co-sponsored by the Sallan Foundation, the New York League of Conservation Voters, the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, Columbia Law School

An expert panel will provide an assessment of NYC’s landmark Local Law 84, the Building Energy Benchmarking mandate, that started collecting energy use data in 2010. Some 15,000 large properties are covered by this ordinance including office and residential buildings. It is one of the achievements of PlaNYC 2030 to help cut the City’s carbon footprint by 30%. The expectation for the law is that benchmarking data would help identify energy efficiency opportunities and turn attention to “low hanging fruit” opportunities with very cost effective returns. The panel will discuss the lessons being learned from the benchmarking data and trends and their view on what is working well and what could be improved.
