Event - Green Building Benchmarking & the Role of Data in EE (Roundtable Discussion)

This Green Building Benchmarking event will take place on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014, from 9:30am to 11:30am EDT. The Streamed Panel Discussion will take place from 10:00am to 11:30am EDT. The Meeting in New York, will take place at 10 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, New York.

In 2009 Mayor Bloomberg enacted the most comprehensive energy efficiency (EE) policy through the Greener, Greater Building Plan (GGBP). As part of this policy Local Law 84 requires buildings 50,000 sq ft or larger to publicly disclose their energy and water use. This data is being used to create a comparative online platform called the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.

It has already come to light that NYC buildings as a whole are more efficient than their counterparts around the country. The ENERGY STAR score has increased already from 64 to 67. As more years are cataloged and compared New York City will pin point what projects must take precedence over others and what strategies are successful.

The roundtable discussion will explore the role of benchmarking and how it is driving greater profitability of buildings, reducing greenhouse gas admissions and, in turn, creating jobs throughout the real estate and construction industry. It will also answer the following questions:
  • What are the initial findings of the process? 
  • How do building owners capitalize on the data collected? 
  • How can building owners reduce energy use? 
  • How will the government incentivize utilities to automatically upload energy use data?
