New Toolkit Helps Turn Building Performance Data into Action and Savings
Reports, tools, and case studies examine pioneering efforts in Washington, D.C. and New York City to enable local governments and energy efficiency providers to replicate their success in maximizing energy and greenhouse gas emissions savings.
Each year, U.S. buildings consume more energy than most countries as a whole and generate more than one-third of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. In many buildings, this energy use and its associated costs and pollution, could be cut by 30 percent or more through improved operations and use of existing technology. These building efficiency improvements rely on establishing a better understanding of how buildings are using energy and water and harnessing that data to enhance business decisions. The DCSEU's Teaming Partner, the Institute for Market Transformation, developed a comprehensive toolkit to guide city sustainability leadership, energy efficiency service providers, utilities, and building owners in effectively deploying building energy and water performance data to drive savings.
