The Pembina Institute presents a webinar on the benefits of building energy benchmarking, featuring guest speakers and an audience Q&A.

Benchmarking allows property owners to determine how the energy performance of their buildings compares with historical consumption and similar buildings. This, in turn, helps owners identify opportunities to save energy and water, and thereby save money on utility bills.

The Lower Mainland Local Government Association recently passed a resolution calling for “Provincial Action on Building Energy Benchmarking.” This fall, the Union of B.C. Municipalities will consider the same resolution, which asks the B.C. government to require benchmarking for large buildings and annual reporting of this data to the province. This approach is already being used in 25 North American cities, the states of Washington and California, and the province of Ontario, along with numerous jurisdictions in the U.K., Europe, and Asia.
