NYC Seeks Owner and Manager Input for 2018 Benchmarking Law Expansion

Local Law 84, the benchmarking law, was enacted eight years ago and currently affects all buildings larger than 50,000 square feet. The goal of benchmarking is to encourage landlords to be more energy efficient by forcing them to track their energy and water usage, and to see how their buildings compare to similar buildings in terms of consumption

Starting in 2018, owners with buildings over 25,000 square feet will also be required to submit energy performance data to an agency of the city. In preparation for the expanded regulations, the city is seeking input from owners and managers who work with buildings of this size.

The NYC Benchmarking Help Center will be conducting a focus group regarding rollout of the new regulations on Tuesday, July 11 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The session will be held at 253 Broadway, 14th Floor. All focus group participants will receive a $50 Visa gift card as compensation, per the Benchmarking Help Center. You can reach out to or 212-566-5584 for additional details.
