New York City has released its third annual Local Law 84 Benchmarking Report. The new report analyzes a trove of building energy use data from 2012, collected from more than 23,000 buildings representing more than 2.1 billion square feet of space. It shows an increasing number of building owners are consistently reporting their energy and water use to the city and that the data collected is allowing the city to identify construction types and systems characteristics to better direct policies and programs toward the greatest energy efficiency opportunities.
