Harnessing the Free Market to Improve Energy Efficiency: State Benchmarking and Disclosure Policies Webinar

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

View the Webinar

Commercial buildings compose nearly half of building energy use and roughly 20% of total energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. Energy expenditures average more than $2 per square foot in commercial and government buildings, making energy a cost worth managing. States can encourage building owners to improve the efficiency of their buildings by making energy performance visible through the use of benchmarking and disclosure policies. Through enhanced awareness, benchmarking results can drive new investment and create an estimated 5 to 15 green jobs per $1 million invested. This webinar introduced participants to benchmarking and disclosure laws across the country and provided an update on the goals and activities of the State and Local Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action).
