The 2021 Building Energy Performance Standards effective January 1, 2021, have been established with the final rulemaking posted in the DC Register on April 30, 2021. All BEPS Program rulemaking and public comments received on proposed rules are available. Building owners that wish to compare their building’s evaluation against the BEPS may do so by finding the building on the Building Energy Performance disclosure. Those wishing to request a variance described in the BEPS Establishment Rules (20 DCMR 3530.6 and 3530.7) may do so by submitting the Variance Request Form.
Below are links to the “Guide to the 2021 BEPS”, as well as a copy of the benchmarking data used to create the Standards.
