Energy Benchmarking Disclosure

<< Back to Energy Benchmarking main page

Each year, the District of Columbia publishes detailed energy and water performance benchmarking data from the largest buildings in the city. Data is disclosed beginning with the second year of data for a building. Because the benchmarking law has been phased-in over several years, the set of data that is disclosed has grown larger each year. In 2015, this disclosure was fully phased in.

The benchmarking data is currently provided as a spreadsheet on the District of Columbia Open Data Portal. You can also view benchmarking data on DOEE’s new interactive mapping tool, EnergyBenchmarkingDC.org. Additionally, the District publishes up-to-date energy benchmarking results and detailed 15-minute interval power consumption data for most properties owned by the District Government and operated by the Department of General Services (DGS) on BuildSmartDC.com.

In preparation of the new Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS), DOEE is releasing the 2018 District Median ENERGY STAR Scores so building owners can evaluate how their building performs compared to similar buildings in the District. Please note that if your building does not meet these medians (higher than the ENERGY STAR Score and Lower than the Source EUI) then your building may be required to improve its energy efficiency starting in 2021. Please see Building Energy Performance Standards for more information.
