Energy Data - Completed

Building owners need information about energy use in order to measure and manage it. However, many building owners cannot access this information. Through the Better Buildings Energy Data Accelerator, local governments joined forces with their local utilities to make it easier for building owners to get access to whole-building energy usage data for the purposes of benchmarking their buildings.
