Energy Benchmarking Policies: A Market Approach to Energy Efficiency

Wendy Lee, EIT
Salt Lake City- Energy Advisor
Institute for Market Transformation




Energy benchmarking is a basic practice that can set baselines, provide energy usage information and aid in establishing goals for improvement, but like many simple functions, it is not used as much as it could be in the built environment. Various city ordinances requiring benchmarking and public disclosure have been passed and implemented across the country showing that this simple strategy lends to behavioral changes including investment in energy efficiency, implementation, and training. This type of change is witnessed on an industry-level and contributes to market change. Additionally, the transparency of energy efficiency data has led to increased awareness and education in previously hard to enter sectors, such as real estate financing. Wendy Lee, from Salt Lake City, will discuss local benchmarking initiatives and how it has affected behavioral change as well as results from other cities across the nation.
