Benchmarking and Building Performance Standards: A Resource Compendium
As energy efficiency in the built environment continues to grow as an industry standard, action plans to mitigate climate change that contain elements such as building performance standard (BPS) policies and benchmarking have become more popular with cities and energy management stakeholders. Benchmarking is a way to measure the current energy performance of a building against past data or buildings of a similar size and occupancy. Building performance standards take benchmarking a step further where a policy is enacted by a jurisdiction to meet climate goals, achieve energy savings, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
These resources will help navigate benchmarking and building performance standards (BPS).
