The California Energy Commission (CEC) will hold a public workshop on 3/25 to review and seek input on the initial proposal for implementation of Assembly Bill 802’s building energy use data and public disclosure provisions. The workshop will be held at 1516 Ninth Street (First Floor, Art Rosenfeld Hearing Room) at 9:00am – interested parties may participate in person or by WebEx/phone (see below for details).
The following background on this proposal is available from the CEC:
AB 802 revises Public Resources Code Section 25402.10 to require utilities to provide energy consumption data for covered buildings to the owners, owner’s agents, or operators of those buildings upon request, and further requires the Energy Commission to establish a benchmarking and public disclosure program for certain buildings. AB 802 went into effect on January 1, 2016, and repealed the Nonresidential Building Energy Use Disclosure Program implemented by the Energy Commission pursuant to Assembly Bill 1103 (Saldana, Chapter 533, Statutes of 2007).
Energy Commission staff will present an initial proposal to seek early stakeholder input in the development of the draft regulations. Discussion and opportunities to comment will follow the presentation of each section.
