    LA's Existing Building Energy and Water Efficiency Ordinance

    Free Workshop   

    USGBC-LA and LABBC are facilitating a series of workshops to help building owners comply with the city's new Existing Building Energy & Water Efficiency (EBEWE) Ordinance.

    •  What is the city's policy context for the ordinance
    • When specific properties are required to submit benchmarking information.
    • What building and utility information is required for complying with the energy and water benchmarking and reporting requirements.
    • How to access utility data to benchmark properties with Energy Star Portfolio Manager.
    • When properties must also comply with energy auditing and retro-commission requirements.
    • Information about the Benchmarking Help Center and supporting programs and resources by the LA Better Buildings Challenge.

    A special tour at La Kretz Innovation Campus will be offered at 12pm, right after the workshop.
