Regional Forum - You Can't Manage What You Don't Measure: Benchmarking and Labeling Tools for Energy Efficiency

Energy benchmarking and labeling are tools that local governments can use to help reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions from existing buildings. By collecting and reporting energy data, building owners and operators can understand their building’s energy use and identify targeted approaches for reduction. This half day forum will cover statewide benchmarking requirements, discuss the value of benchmarking for property owners, and highlight several local Bay Area benchmarking ordinances as tools to help cities meet their energy efficiency and climate action plan goals.

This free BayREN Forum is open to all. We anticipate an attendance of 75+ professionals representing 20+ local jurisdictions.
