How Cities Can Use Building Energy Data to Drive Efficiency


IMT recently released Putting Data to Work: How Cities are Using Building Energy Data to Drive Efficiency, a report that examines how the District and New York, as well as a handful of other leading cities, are putting their energy policy data to use. The report, and the larger Putting Data to Work toolkit it anchors, draws from three years of work with New York and the District, along with their partners, New York Energy Efficiency Corporation (NYCEEC) and the District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU), to understand how, exactly, cities and their partners can better use benchmarking performance data to generate positive returns.

This blog is the second in an ongoing series exploring the findings of IMT’s Putting Data to Work project, a three-year effort to explore how cities and their partners can better deploy building performance data to drive action on energy efficiency in buildings in their jurisdiction.
