City of Seattle - Energy Benchmarking

Seattle’s Building Energy Benchmarking & Reporting Ordinance
Informational Forum for Energy Efficiency Service Providers
WHEN: August 11, 2011
FROM: 1:30 to 3:00 pm
WHERE: Seattle Municipal Tower, 700 5th Avenue,
Seattle Conference Room 4050/60 (40th Floor)

The Seattle Department of Planning and Development and the Northwest Energy Efficiency Council are hosting an informational forum on August 11, 2011 for energy service providers interested in learning more about the market opportunities being created by the City’s building energy benchmarking and reporting ordinance. Owners of more than 8,000 buildings throughout the city will be required to benchmark and report on the energy performance of their buildings over the next nine months. Although many will choose to do this work themselves, or will use in-house resources, many others may opt to turn to outside service providers for assistance with benchmarking and with identifying and implementing follow-on energy efficiency improvements.

Forum attendees will learn more about this new program, and will be able to provide input to staff on what the City of Seattle can do to help building owners find the trade ally resources they need.

Who should attend?
• Energy efficiency consultants
• Energy auditors
• Mechanical/electrical contractors
• Individuals looking to enter the energy efficiency field
