BACKGROUND: On April 20, 2020, the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen unanimously passed a Building Energy Performance Standard at their first virtual meeting. This performance standard builds on the Building Energy Awareness Ordinance passed just three years earlier. BEPS requires municipal, institutional, commercial, and multifamily buildings who's square footage is equal to or greater than 50,000 to meet a minimum level of performance (the standard) set for their building type. 

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.
