February 9 Program
Energy Benchmarking in Midwestern Metropolises
In September 2013, Chicago adopted a benchmarking ordinance for building energy use, hoping to raise awareness of business and residential energy usage. Kansas City created a similar benchmarking ordinance targeting large buildings in the metro area by offering programs and technical assistance.
During this seminar, Kathryn Eggers of Chicago, Program Coordinator at Elevate Energy, and Jennifer Gunby, Kansas City Community Energy Program Manager, discuss their work educating about and promoting the benefits of the benchmarking ordinances. They will also share some information on outcomes thus far.
