Virtual Benchmarking 101

Join the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter and the City of St. Louis for an overview of the Building Energy Awareness Ordinance with step-by-step instructions on data collection, benchmarking in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, and reporting data to the City of St. Louis. 

On January 27, 2017, the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen unanimously passed an energy benchmarking ordinance that requires municipal, institutional, commercial, and multifamily residential buildings who's square footage is equal to or greater than 50,000 to track and report their energy and water usage annually to the City's Building Division.

In the City of St. Louis, buildings (residential, commercial, and industrial) are responsible for 80% of greenhouse gas emissions. Policies like the City's benchmarking requirements and the new Building Energy Performance Standard (BEPS) make St. Louis' existing buildings heroes in the fight against wasted energy, air pollution and climate change.

Privately owned buildings are required to benchmark and submit data annually by May 01 of each year using the free, online tool ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
