In a world where environmental issues are more prominent than ever, many groups in the United States have turned their attention to the building sector. According to the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT), the building sector is the single largest user of energy in
the United States, accounting for roughly 40% of total energy consumption. In an effort to reduce this consumption and the environmental and financial costs associated with it, many municipalities have enacted building energy benchmarking and transparency laws.
This eBook aims to highlight important things to know regarding these laws, demystify the process of complying, and introduce three additional ways to go above and beyond simply benchmarking.
