Sallan Sponsored Event
How Knowledge Can Save Power
Thursday, Jan 23, 2014
A new class of political leaders is taking the reins of government just as building owners and operators are getting familiar with the NYC Benchmarking law's requirements and data disclosure impact. This makes it an ideal time to take stock of what has been learned so far about building energy performance disclosure.
Supporters of the law expected that disclosure of energy-use data would foster the search for energy efficiency opportunities and inspire "low hanging fruit" projects with cost-effective returns, but it appears these expectations were over-optimistic. Why is that?
Hear what the experts are saying about what is needed to build momentum and enhance the market-making impact of this landmark sustainability law. Join us and help Benchmarking thrive and live up to its potential.
