Building Energy Performance Benchmarking Development
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Commercial buildings applying for solar incentives in SB 1 programs need to receive benchmark ratings that meet the Eligibility Criteria identified in the SB 1 Guidelines. AB 1103 requires electric or gas utilities upload energy consumption data for commercial buildings to Energy Star Portfolio Manager by Jan. 1, 2009, and disclose benchmarking data to prospective buyers, lessees, lenders by January 1, 2010. Portfolio Manager currently can benchmark only a fraction of commercial building types, so an alternative benchmarking approach must be developed to meet the mandate. The purpose of this contract amendment is to add time and funds necessary to identify the best approaches to address the above issues, and develop a benchmarking methodology that meets the eligibility requirements and deadlines in SB 1 and AB 1103.
