EPA Benchmarking and Building Performance Standards Policy Toolkit
EPA’s Benchmarking and Building Performance Standards Policy Toolkit aims to inform and support state and local government decision makers who are exploring adopting policies focused on reducing energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from existing commercial and multifamily buildings in their communities.
As more state and local governments seek to adopt BPS and other polices for existing buildings, this toolkit can offer:
- Key considerations for policy design
- Opportunities for cross-jurisdictional coordination
- Strategies for using EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® tool
