Second Proposed Rulemaking on Private Building Benchmarking

Friday, July 20, 2012

The proposed rulemaking, published in the DC Register, is accompanied by a set of guidance documents, published online here. These guidance documents are part of the regulatory package, as they provide additional technical details that needed for full compliance with the District’s benchmarking requirements. These details are not included in the regulation itself because they may change year-to-year as ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is continually upgraded. The set of guidance documents also include several optional forms for requesting tenant that building owners and managers may find useful, along with a comprehensive FAQ and compliance checklist. Summaries of public comments, and DDOE’s responses, are also provided.

In addition, the DC Sustainable Energy Utility has prepared a two-page flyer summarizing key information about the benchmarking requirements.
